TWO of the giants of Limerick schools rugby, Crescent College Comprehensive and St Munchins College, will play each other in an innovative charity match at the Markets Field next week.

The two renowned rugby nurseries will play for a cup in honour of two former Games Masters, who by coincidence, coached against each other, the late Dudley Herbert, of Crescent College Comprehensive and the late Sean Conneally, of St Munchin’s College.

The inaugural match will take place in the Markets Field on Friday, December 15 with a kick-off at 6.30pm.

Both schools have set up an organising group within each school and are eagerly looking forward to the event.

The two well-known charities that will benefit from the Dudley Herbert-Sean Conneally Cup are Simon Community and the Peter McVerry Trust who do much good and necessary work within Limerick

A large crowd is anticipated to witness the launch of this Cup for such worthy causes.
