This week's club notes come from Carrick-on-Suir, Midleton and Shannon rugby clubs.
The tourists have a hectic schedule over the coming weeks with five games to be played as they make their way around South Africa. They will be busy off the pitch also as they follow the Lions tour in the hope of meeting some of their Lions heros.
The students will get the chance to head to three of the Lions touring games, the Sharks in Durban, the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth and the Emerging Springboks in Cape Town.
The tour itself has taken the bones of two years to organise and is a credit to the school and volunteers that aided the whole process. The students themselves were out in force fundraising through different initiatives like raffles, bag packing, quiz nights and much more. No doubt nobody wanted to miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime!
The Castletroy College senior squad will take on Hillcrest Highschool and Northwood Highschool in Durban, Grey Highschool in Port Elizabeth, Point Highschool in Mossel Bay and Park Gymnasium in Cape Town.
Munster Rugby would like to wish the school side all the best as they embark on this exciting tour.
