Our latest edition of club notes comes from Old Christians RFC.

Old Christian’s RFC hosted a south Munster Minis U10 blitz on Saturday.
We welcomed over 170 kids with 14 teams participating from the following clubs on the day; Cork Constitution FC, Dolphin RFC, Fermoy RFC, Highfield RFC, Kanturk RFC, Midelton RFC & Old Christians RFC.
On a cold December morning the teams entertained the spectators with some fast paced physical rugby. The future is bright for Munster Rugby with the talent that was on show from all teams on the day,
The matches were 8-a-side with seven minutes halves and rolling substitutions included. Most teams played five matches on the morning.
After the blitz, the children and supporters where treated to some hot food which was kindly supported by club sponsor O’Reilly’s Fish and Chips in Glanmire and treats supplied by Lidl Glanmire & Ryan’s SuperValu Glanmire. This was a well earned and pleasant surprise for the participants.
The event was a major success with a lot of positive feedback from travelling teams and supporters. The events would not have been made possible without the support from the club’s volunteers on the morning.
See below for a selection of pictures from the day.
