A selection of players from the Daughters of Charity in Munster recently took part in a challenge match at Garryowen Rugby Club.
Following numerous requests by pupils to their newly appointed Principle, Louis Mulqueen, training began under the guidance of Munster Community Rugby professional staff which commenced in the school term of February to May 2009.
Enthusiasm continued this September leading to two outside coaching influences Dara O’Sullivan and Paudie Sheehan into volunteering to enhance and continue the work done by Munster Rugby’s Fiach O’Loughlin, Community Rugby Officer.
The school is currently in the process of designing its new jersey and looks forward to launching it in January 2010.
Principle Louis Mulqueen would like to take this opportunity to thank Garryowen FC for the use of their club jersey for the school’s first rugby match.
