Hi All,

Training is on every Sunday from 9.00-10.00am on the all-weather pitch (Castle Ave end).

New players are very welcome.

Please make sure your child is wearing the correct footwear (see info below) & a GUM SHIELD (a strict NO GUM SHIELD NO PLAY rule applies).

Any parents who would like to assist with the coaching are very welcome; however they must become a member of the Club under the IRFU Child Welfare Guidelines.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Richard Henry
U8 Head Coach
