St. Pauls Rugby Development Programme Fundraiser!

22 Apr 2016 - 22 Apr 2016 Clontarf Rugby Club, Castle Avenue, Clontarf, Dublin. 3

St. Paul’s College Rugby Development Programme 2015 - 2020 is a joint initiative between St. Paul’s College and Clontarf Rugby Club, supported by Leinster Rugby and IRFU. 

Over the last decade St. Paul’s has lost its competitiveness at rugby, which was once the traditional sport of the school. A committee has been formed to re-establish St. Paul’s as a force in schools Rugby once more. The committee is made up of members of St. Paul’s Staff, parents, past pupils and members of Clontarf Rugby Club. 

The Committee has established a 5 year Rugby Programme commencing with the 2015 entrants and building annually. Fully qualified coaches have been appointed and results to date have been fantastic, with the 1st Year team having notable successes against Belvedere, Newbridge and St. Fintan’s. The 2nd Year team have also had wins against Mount Temple and building towards a Junior Cup campaign in October 2016!

For the Development Programme to work, it will require fundraising and sponsorship over the 5 years. 

To kick off the fundraising of the development programme, an Inaugural Fundraising  Dinner will be held on Friday 22nd April at 7.30 pm, a Clontarf Rugby Club.
