Festival continues to thrive

The coaches and parents of the DLSP U-7s have been busy in preparation for the upcoming Kieran Burke Festival which takes place this Sunday at De La Salle Palmerston's ground.

The Kieran Burke Festival of Rugby was set up in honour of one of DLSP's youngest and most enthusiastic players, Kieran Burke, who died of leukaemia in 2004 aged just six.

The festival, running in its 14th year, started out as an event for the U-6 and U-7 but in 2010, due to the rising numbers attending, the tournament was restricted to U-7s.

This year's event will see 650 children from 20 Leinster clubs taking part in about 150 matches, on what is sure to be an exciting and energetic morning of rugby.

Stillorgan RFC, who only recently set up a mini youth section, will take part in their first festival at this age level which is great to see.

An event of this magnitude takes a considerable amount of organising and an army of volunteers to cover administration, facilities, health and safety, catering, etc.

We would like to thank all the volunteers, members, Leinster Rugby and the local community for their the continued support.

A great event in memory of a great young man. Long may the Kieran Burke Festival prosper.
