Monday 17th March 2008
Garryowen FC, 3pm

It’s been a historic week for Castletroy, who won their first Avonmore Milk Munster Schools Junior Cup title on Wednesday, defeating Presentation Brothers College 22-15 at Musgrave Park. With the double firmly in their sights, and having already knocked last year’s champions Presentation Brothers College out of the competition by just one point in a thrilling semi final, they will no doubt have a spring in their step.

However, Cork side Christian Brothers College, having last won the Senior title in 2003, will come to Garryowen with the prize firmly in their minds. They saw off the challenge of Ardscoil Ris in the quarter final, defeating the Limerick side 13-6. CBC traveled to Clanwilliam for their semi final clash with Glenstal Abbey School and came out 18-12 on top.

The final has certainly captured the imagination of even the neutral rugby supporter, with CBC having 27 titles under their belts and a wealth of history and success in schools rugby, and Castletroy College, having been founded just eight years ago, competing in their very first Senior Cup final.

Supporters attending the game will have the opportunity to vote for their Avonmore Super Hero Man of the Match. The winner of the Super Hero Man of the Match will be presented with a €400 voucher for the Munster Rugby Store by Avonmore after the game. By texting your vote in the last fifteen minutes of the game free of charge, you will also have the opportunity to win a €200 voucher for the Munster Rugby Store, as all winning voters will be entered into a draw.

Admission to the Avonmore Milk Munster Schools Senior Cup final is €10 for adults and €5 for students. The match programme will be on sale inside the ground for €2.

Please note that there is no parking available for the general public inside the ground.
