Killorglin Rugby Club’s AGM takes place this Friday night in O’Shea’s Bar, Langford St at 8:30pm. All Club members are asked to attend.
Our annual Summer Tag Rugby has begun. It takes place every Tuesday evening at 7:30 in the Dragon’s Den All weather pitch. Tag Rugby is non-contact, and is open to both men and women to play for only €3 per night.
The Rugby Club Underage Awards took place last Friday evening in the Intermediate School Killorglin. In his opening address, club President Tom Curtayne spoke of the trojan work being done at underage level in the club, but pointed out that there is more help needed in Youth Administration. He also thanked the Intermediate School for the use of their facilities and the Community College for the use of their grounds where the club play all home games.
The Club then presented awards to the Player of the Year (PoY) & Most Improved Player (MIP) in each age grade. The U10 awards went to Ryan McCormack (MIP) & Luke O’Sullivan Griffin (PoY). The U12 awards went to Fionan O’Sullivan (MIP) & Neil O’Brien (PoY). The U13 awards went to Fionn O’Shea & Colm O’Mahony (MIP) & (PoY). The U14 awards went to Deavon Flaherty (MIP) & Odhran O’Mahony (PoY). The U16 awards went to Kevin McEnery (MIP) & Peter Mullins (PoY). The U18 awards went to Patrick Doherty (MIP) & Mike Breen (PoY). The Intermediate School Head Coach Colm Conway also presented similar awards to his senior team with accolades going to Tadhg Prenderville (MIP) & Fionan Crowley (PoY). Along with these awards there was also a medal presentation made to the Intermediate School’s Senior Team who won the West Munster Cup, and to the Club’s U14s who won the Plate competition in the Tralee International Festival of Rugby. Finally a presentation was made to Patrick Kilkenny & Donagh McGillicuddy, two of the Club’s Under 16 team who have made it into the Munster Youth squad for next Season. Best of luck to the two Glencar natives & Congratulations to all our winners. We hope to see them all when we start back to training in early September!
The good weather and the novelty of the venue conspired to make the Irish Caravan and Camping Club’s National Rally hosted by Bruff, their very biggest ever. With Touring caravans and campers from all corners of the country, Clonmel to Wicklow and Louth to Galway, over one hundred and twenty units descended on Kilballyowen Park over the weekend. With an expectation of about eighty units starting off, Organiser Jim O’ Shaughnessy informed me that the last three days saw a massive increase in bookings (Over 50%) with even a couple of new members joining to avail of their first ever trip to Bruff.
The Advance party arrived Midday on Thursday to divide the two playing pitches into Ten meter by Nine meter Caravan "Pitches", followed by an evening at the Club Bar hosted by Mary-Paul Cook and her staff led by former club captain Mike Carroll.
Friday saw the main event kicking off with the arrival of most of the main posse. After the thirsty work of setting up and getting an evening meal together in their own caravans again they adjourned to avail of the facilities on offer.
Saturday saw the arrival of the Six Nations and Triple Crown trophies brought to the Club by Noel O’ Meara from the Munster Branch. After a photo shoot, our U13 squad were presented with their North Munster Cup medals by International Sevens player and newly signed by Connacht, Brian Tuohy. This follows an amazing year in which the completed a triple of the League, Cup and Tralee International Tournament wins.
Then the ICCC members sat down for a prepared meal outside and inside the pavilion and with a band set-up partied long into the night.
Sundays activities included a presentation from the ICCC to the Club, Kids Club activities, Treasure Hunt in the town of Bruff (Which was hosting a Fleadh Ceoil as well, Busy weekend all around). A Barbecue kicked off at around 5:00 pm with an impromptu music session ably led by some of the ICCC committee members, another Presentation of a Plaque from Bruff RFC to the ICCC to be placed on the wall of their new Clubhouse, following which they then adjourned to the clubhouse with the arrival of the Connery’s who provided the music well into the early hours.
On Monday, following the break-up coffee morning, they all went on their merry way, leaving the Club exactly as they had found it, and only the recycling skips which were full to the brim left any clue that they had even been there.
An absolutely fabulous weekend all round, we enjoyed hosting them and we hope they enjoyed the facilities and the weekend that was in it.
