Christian Brothers College senior side will host their Presentation Brothers College counterparts in the Brother O'Reilly Cup this Friday, 13th December at 7.15pm in Lansdowne, Cork.
Tony O’Reilly played with Dolphin from 1960 until 1962 while based in Cork. Capped for Ireland 29 times he had a remarkable career setting records for try scoring for Club, Country and the Lions.
Dolphin President John Sylvester commented "It is an honour for Dolphin RFC and it’s members to commemorate two living legends of Irish Rugby and a great opportunity to celebrate our past while being a showpiece of our present club game with legends of the future".
"We as a club are very grateful to one of our members for presenting this trophy. Irish rugby is in a great place at the moment and with growing support from the IRFU and the sporting public it can continue to be so with a vibrant Ulster Bank All Ireland League".
