Easter messages from the youths and mini section

To the coaches

To Ollie, Alan, Kar, Ed, Gerry, Stephen, Audrey, Paddy, Martina, and other parents that have helped out throughout the season Thank you so much for all your time and effort that you put in week in and week out, the club functions because of you. Your time that you give up freely to the teams and the club is invaluable. The youth section owe’s it complete success to you and your families for all the effort and passion you put into Tallaght Rugby.

Also the parents that have been so supportive by helping out even with the small things and getting involved thank you so much for your help and we will still need you to help this club grow. So please do make yourself known and get involved as much as possible.

Thank You, Philip.

To the U7

The U7 team has grown every week with new players and parents dropping in. Our team is getting better and better and its amazing to see how good you all have been getting. I truly believe we will have Leinster and Ireland players coming from Tallaght RFC in the future. Paddy, Martina and all the parents that help every week you are the best help I could ever ask for thanks for everything. Happy Easter to everyone and we will see you on the 3rd, Thanks Philip

To the U8

Wanna wish our super under 8’s a Happy Easter. Both coaches Gerry and Stephen along with your parents and in fact the whole club are amazed at your progress this year. At each blitz we have attended you have shown great teamwork, enthusiasm and we have seen amazing try’s and we have all enjoyed ourselves. Looking forward to seeing you all on the 3rd for more Rugby Fun.

Each week at training they put in great effort and teamwork and make us all very proud to work with them . We see great things for the future of our young club going forward and these super under eights are the beacons that will be shining bright not only for TRFCs future but for the future of both men’s and women’s rugby in Ireland. Slan go foll agus ca buil mo gansai gorm!

To the U10

from Kar. Id like to say thanks for all the parents that take their time out of their Sunday to being their kids to training and travelling to matches. Have a good Easter, hope to see you all after the break.

To the U12

Thank you to all the parents who have come out of their way to support not only the u12s team but also the rest of Tallaght R.F.C. The u12s have progressed hugely throughout the year getting better and better every week. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and I look forward to seeing you all after the break. Thanks Ollie

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the under 12 players and their parents, grandparents, & their Brothers & sisters a very happy Easter, These are a very special group of kids who go out week on week and give everything they have to give and it has been great to see them grow into the game week after week, I hope you all have a great break and enjoy yourselves. Thanks Alan.

To the U15 and U18 Girls 

Its been an a amazing year so far our teams have grown but then reduced again in numbers only, the one thing that has constantly grown is your passion and skill on the pitch. Our team that is a mix of 3 different clubs has been a unique experience and we are looking to grow our side of the team. Happy Easter to you all, your friends and family. Thanks Philip

TaBarys U15 and U18 Girls fight hard

The amalgamated teams TaBarys (Tallaght St. Mary & Old Belvedere) played together on Saturday against stiff opposition with mixed results for both the U15 and U18.

U15

TaBarys U15 played away to Portarlington and traveled with 7 players. TaBarys got a loan of 3 players from Portarlington and they played fantastic. It was like the 3 girls Michelle Ava and Lucy had always played on the team. the TaBarys team welcomed them with open arms.

From the start TaBarys  ran hard and fast and didn’t shy away from the contact lead by captain Hannah Reilly who took crash balls into a tough and strong defense. Supported constantly by Lynn and Kerri who received pop passes and drove the team forward. After going 1 try down early on TaBarys responded with a try from Sinead Tyrrell who took a great pass from Kayleigh Preston and ran 50 meters to score under the posts. 3 more trys were scored by TaBarys with the best team try scored by Angel Ashe Kilroy after fantastic support play from Ashling Tyrrell who stood in at scrum half after her sister Sinead left the field with an injury. TaBarys were reduced to 9 girls for the second half but still stood up tall and done themselves proud. The result went to Portalington with 32-20 result

U18

TaBarys U18 played away to Carlow RFC and came home with a 17-17 draw. The girls fought hard and nearly came away with the points until Carlow scored under the posts in the last minute the conversion was to be taken and TaBarys ran down the kick to keep the game at a draw. Trys scored by Ashling Fields Jess Keating and Vicki Brown brough TaBarys into the lead and they fought hard to keep a strong Carlow side out of the try area. powerful play from Judy Bobbett, Laura Crossen and Sinead Aspell kept TaBarys in the lead until the last minute. The support play from Liza Gibson and Marina Politis drove the 8 player team forward and breaking the gain line through out the game.

*******Rugby Boot Exchange*******

I have been talking to a few of the parents and some have old rugby boots that their child no longer wears and are still perfect, in some cases only worn once. 
If you have any boots that you want to hand down to another child let me know. 
We already have a pair of size 2 and size 4 boots if anyone wants them we won’t be asking anyone for money. 
We will bring a box to training for the next few weeks if anyone wants to drop off/take a pair of boots
