Although the result on the pitch may not have been to the fans’ liking it did not stop them from enjoying themselves. ‘We’d a great time and the lads even kept quite when ROG (Ronan O’Gara) was taking his kicks,’ laughed a volunteer. After their Thomond Park exploits, many of the Youth Clubs stopped off at local eateries for a well earned bite to eat before making the trip home. Joe Walsh, LYS, thanked the clubs and Munster Rugby for their support and looked forward to LYS’s next trip to Fortress Thomond. Watergate Community Morning Fun, food and frolics were the order of business at LYS’s John’s St youth space on Friday morning last, for the Watergate Community coffee morning. The morning saw the young and the not so young, sample some of the tasty treats, avail of that all important beauty treatment, catch up on the chat and shoot some pool. Though it was a certain young man by the name of Aidan that proved quite the pool hustler. ‘The morning was a great success and we look forward to more of the same in the months ahead,’ said an excited Mary Duhig, Project Co-ordinator, Irishtown Garda Youth Diversion Project. Speaking exclusively to infolink, Mary expressed her thanks to all those gave up their time to contribute to the community event.
