Killarney RFC U11 & U12 enjoy trip to Cork
U11/U12 trip to Cork:
Last Saturday afternoon, in perfect playing weather Killarney RFC u11/12 took a road trip to Cork for a challenge match and a day of rugby and adventure. The opposition on the day was Cork club Sunday’s Well and Collins Barracks in Cork provided the stunning backdrop for an action packed afternoon of rugby.
The games were played on the military pitch known as the ‘Camp Field’ which overlooks Cork city. Killarney were very impressive and give Sunday’s Well a real demonstration of flowing rugby.
After the wonderful flowing games of rugby both players and coaches availed of Lunch in Collins Barracks followed by a tour of the Barracks and equipment demonstration, which was enjoyedby everyone young and older alike. Ian Harrington the u11/12 head coach happens to be a Commandant in Collins Bks had organised the day and wanted to give the players a day to remember.
This is Ian’s last year with mini rugby after 7 years coaching from U8 to U12. The minis section would like to thank Ian for all his hard work over the past 7 years. Minis Coordinator Liam Murphy adds: “Ian has been a fantastic coach and a fantastic help to me as coordinator and all in the minis section. He has selflessly given his time and effort in promotion the fun in rugby and championing a rugby for all ethos within the section. We wish him all the best and hope he stays involved in coaching at youths going forward”. Thanks a million Ian, for organising a fantastic day for all the U11/U12’s and thanks to coaches Pat Chambers and Damien Dalton for travelling with the lads on the day as well as the many parents who made the trip to support the lads.
