Presentation Brothers College Transition Year Students recently completed a Rugby Coaching Course following 11 weeks of modules tutored by Munster Rugby Coaching Officers.
Shannon 13, Young Munster 25.
Young Munster made it three successive Limerick Charity Cup titles with a comprehensive victory over a young Shannon side at Dooradoyle.
Shannon made the better start and opened the scoring with a try from Emmet McLoughlin which Tadhg Bennett converted after seven minutes.
Tries from Sean Duggan and Aaron Carroll and a conversion and penalty by Willie Staunton had the holders 15-7 ahead at the interval.
A third try for the Cookies from substitute Darragh Payne on sixty minutes which Staunton converted ended Shannon’s hopes of silverware.
Staunton added another penalty for the winners and Shannon’s reply were two penalties from Bennett.
