Dunmore Rugby Club hosted their annual registration night last Thursday evening at the Fairgreen, and the Guinness PRO12 Trophy was on hand for the young players and coaches to snap a picture.

The clubs youth and mini sections have seen numbers swell this season, as the club has put a strong emphasis on recruitment and coaching as well as bolstering the club's committee structure with the addition of Aisling Coen (Secretary) and Eleanor Canny (Club Welfare Officer) to the ranks.

Progress has been driven by club stalwart Keith Corless, who has been instrumental in turning around the fortunes of the club. He has built a team of committed coaches and volunteers to provide a quality experience for the youth players in Dunmore, and has set up a separate 'girls only' mini section - all part of the overall plan to keep this vibrant club beating at the heart of the town.
