Belvo sides' champion challenge

In 2005, Belvedere College finally bridged a 33-year gap when taking the coveted Leinster Schools Senior Cup back north of the Liffey.

Robert Carson was captain of that team and just three years later, under Tom Sexton, they repeated the feat.

Tonight, in an effort to raise much-needed finance for the Belvedere Scholarship Fund, the Belvedere Junior Union has organised a 'Champion of Champions' match between Carson's '05 heroes and Sexton's all-conquering unit of '08.

Cian Healy, Paul O'Donohue, Ian Keatley and Eoin O'Malley were all on board in '05, while Sexton and Michael Keating, both making their way in the Leinster Academy, were centre stage three years on.

All will be in attendance with a possible cameo appearance at some point in the proceedings.

The match will kick off at 7.30 at Anglesea Road.

Your support would be appreciated by all concerned at the Great Denmark Street School.
