COMMUNITY GAMES: Congrats to the Crecora/Patrickswell U11 Tag rugby squad who came away victorious from Tralee IT on Easter Saturday last as Munster champions. They overcame strong opposition from Tipperary in the semi-finals and Kerry in the final with an impressive final score of 18-16. This year’s squad is particularly youthful within their category and this is a fine achievement for such a young team. Well done to all our players, Rían O’Byrne, Ciara Mulqueen, Ciaran Foster, Conner Hannan, Oisin Portley, Sam Riordan, Colin Coughlan, Muireann Leahy, Aoife Gillmartin, Evan Munnelly, Caragh Munnelly and Brandan Nash. These players will go forward to represent Munster at the All-Ireland finals in Athlone in May. Special thanks to our coaches and parents for all your support.
