Members of the Clonmel High School U14 and U15 rugby teams and their teachers travelled to Limerick to see Munster play Connacht in the Magners League at Thomond Park. It was a fantastic evening as it was the first time many of the students were in the home of Munster rugby. They were treated to a very enjoyable match with Munster winning 22-6.
Afterwards, High School past student and Munster player Dave Foley met the students for a chat and some photos. The lads were delighted and meeting the Munster star topped off a wonderful trip.
Congratulations to Padraig Keating on his selection to the Munster Youths and he now has a busy summer ahead of him as the squad prepares for the Autumn inter- provincial series.
Padraig is the latest High School student to be selected to play for Munster. He is a great example to his team mates and a role model to the younger aspiring rugby stars in the school. So well done again Padraig.
