On Wednesday the 6th November 4th, 5th and 6th class participated in a Rugby Blitz organised by Leinster Rugby. Leinster Rugby has been visiting our school for the past 6 weeks training us up and teaching us the rules so we could take part as well as playing a few fun games along the way.

We left the school at 9:30 on Wednesday morning to take the short journey down to Railway Union Club in Sandymount. When we arrived at Railway Union there were four other schools from the local area which we would be playing against. Our class where split into two teams and played 3 games against the other schools. It was so much fun and there was some amazing skills on show. Everyone played really well and scored lots of tries (there may be a Brian O'Driscoll amoungst us yet). After we played our games Leinster rugby were very kind as they gave us all a present for taking part. We jumped back on the bus and sang our way back to school. What a brilliant fun day.


We would like to thank our amazing coach over the past 6 weeks , Ken. WE would also like to thank Billy from Leinster rugby who organised the programme and the Blitz in Railway Union. We had so much fun and learnt a lot too.
