A number of national school blitzes have taken place in the last number of weeks as the 2022/23 season comes to a close.

There were some strong participation levels at recent blitzes in Cahersiveen, St Munchin’s College, Ballincollig and Kanturk.

In Cahersiveen, 26 teams made up from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class students from six schools competed on the day.

The teams played ‘Rugby Prime’ which is two-touch rugby with teams ranging from seven to 10-a-side.

Teams from Portmagee, Scoil Saidhbín, Caherdaniel, Waterville, Filemore and Aghatubrid took part.
