U12’s trip to Thomond Park:
A full bus of 40 children and 10 adults travelled to Thomond Park last Saturday morning to watch Munster take on Stade Francais in the Champions Cup. Given Munsters recent poor run and the fact that Munster are out of the Cup, we were hoping for a good match as Munster redeemed themselves given last weeks very poor performance in Paris. We were not disappointed as we watched Munster claim a bonus point victory over a very strong opposition. Arriving at Thomond Park in time to welcome the Munster bus, the kids made their presence felt and welcomed the ads with vigour. This was acknowledged by the Supporters club the following day, in a message declaring that we should be very proud of our charges! A great game ensued and the kids had a ball. We stopped for food on the way down and everyone had a great day at Thomond. Thanks to Mini Coordinator Liam Murphy for organising this trip and to the parents and coaches who travelled to mind the kids. Well done all! Minis training continues next Saturday.
