'Fantastic' Johnstown girls have talent

On a recent Thursday morning, Johnstown Girls School put on a rugby show at the Seapoint Rugby club grounds in Kilbogget Park.

After taking part in the six-week introductory programme, the girls competed against each other with fantastic intensity, fun and enjoyment, which was evident to the numerous passers-by who stopped to watch what was unfolding on the pitch.

The programme taught the girls the basic skills and fundamentals of rugby through fun-based games and drills. The girls took all of this in their stride and there are some future stars of the game in this group.

Leinster CRO Stephen Costelloe said: "The girls were fantastic to work with, they embraced the game and ran with it, we had a mascot and a special interpretation of the haka and were treated to some fantastic rugby."

Leinster Rugby would like to thank the girls for taking part along with the school and teachers. Also, a big thank you to those who came down to help, and we look forward to seeing how these girls progress in the very near future.
