Last week, Munster Rugby held another hugely successful summer camp at the Killarney Community College. Over 60 children took part and the weather held up in the main to allow for a great week of rugby. On Tuesday, the RBS 6 Nations trophy visited the camp to the excitement of all the children and parents present. Many wonderful photos were taken and the children were delighted to see this VIP visitor and to get the chance to take photos with it. Then on Thursday, two Munster payers – Tomas O’Leary and Darren Sweetnam, visited the camp. There was a very interesting question and answer session with the players, while all the kids got their shirts signed and got the photos taken with the players. The camp was a huge success, with some of our very own club coaches assisting during the week. The children had great fun and learned some great rugby skills in a fun environment.
New Pitch at Aghadoe:
Things are really taking shape up in our new pitch in Aghadoe. Our Senior squad have started training up there on Friday nights from 7:15pm. New players are more than welcome. Contact club captain Ger Moynihan on 087-1240365 for details. The Trim Trail is really taking shape with various pieces already up. Last Thursday Munster Rugby players Tomas O’Leary and Darren Sweetnam visited the pitch and were very impressed with the Trim Trail and the playing pitches. The posts have been painted and we are already planning a busy schedule for the new pitches. A Family Day is being panned for Sunday the 6th of September next, more details of which to follow over the next few weeks. There is a friendly match against Newbridge scheduled for the 15th of August, and we will be hosting all of the Kerry senior sides for the Moss Keane Senior Blitz on the 28th of August. A busy time ahead but we are thrilled that these events can take place at a pitch we can now call home!
