News Update : November 2012

Following the long Summer layoff it was great to see nearly all the squad back for the new season,as well as welcoming three new recruits, Jamie Shanahan, Jack O'Driscoll, Gavin Foley and John O'Sullivan to the coaching team.

The Summer had been especially kind to some boys but following five weeks of good training we were in good shape for the first fixture against Clonakilty on October 13th at the Vale.

All the hard work put in by the squad stood them well as they completely overwhelmed the home team and it was great to see the new lads do so well on their debut's.



On Sunday 4th Nov. it was an early start to get to Charleville for 11am registration and kick off at half past. Two groups of four teams taking part with our lads pitted against Presentation and Galbally of Limerick and Killorglin of Kerry.

After alot of rain in the days leading up to Sunday it was mud bath conditions, but the same for all.

First up was Pres and a very tight game ensued against a very well drilled team but the only score of the game fell to our lads for a well deserved victory.

Next came Galbally and another tough encounter, but this game was much more open and our lads seemed to have the edge and held a slim lead with time almost up, however the Limerick boys refused to give up and snatched a late equaliser.

Lastly Killorglin proved to be very good opponents and a very exciting game ensued,but bodies were now tiring and mistakes creeping in yet our lads looked to have the upper hand. But with scores level at two-a-piece the Kerry boys got in for a rather fortunate try, and despite our lads best efforts, an equaliser could'nt be found.

This was a really tough hours rugby for the boys and a great experience that should stand to them going forward. Compliments must go to the host club, who ran it off like clockwork and provided welcome refreshments afterwards.
