Thank you to St Mary’s National School, Saggart for the opportunity to help host their Sports day on the 15th of May.
80 children from 4th 5th and 6th class were taken through their paces and shown tag rugby by Gary Hurley from Tallaght RFC and Tom McKeon from Leinster.
Held in the St Mary’s GAA club the children experienced a get afternoon of rugby which they all enjoyed along with the
A big thank you to teacher Sadhbh Kane who commented ” the sports day involved teaching large groups of children how to play rugby, with ages ranging from 9 years to 12 years. Most of these children had never played any form of rugby before. There was a great set-up with children being broken into groups and all getting a chance to participate. All enjoyed the experience and have since expressed an interest in playing the sport. Thanks to all involved in making this possible”
Tallaght RFC are always looking for new players and its never too late to come and give it a try.
All youths train at 11am in Ballymana Lane every Sunday. Hope to see you all there.
