Tullamore hosted its first mini blitz for girls when Athy, Ballinasloe, Mullingar, Portlaoise, Ratoath and two teams from Tullamore had a very enjoyable morning of rugby.

Almost 100 girls had a minimum of three games each.

This is the club's first season fielding minis girls'

teams and it's been a success.

Last season the club fielded a women's team and an U-18 and U-15 teams for the first time. All are still going strong with the women's team topping the Leinster League Division 2 and being promoted for next season. They play Railway in a play-off for the League title tomorrow in Donnybrook.

Thanks to the organisers Rob Kelly (minis co-ordinator, Tullamore) with Alma Egan (also photographer for the day!), Tara Evans, Katie Byrne and Veronica Smyth.

And of course thanks to the mammies and daddies of the host club!
