MUNSTER Director of Rugby, Rassie Erasmus, was on hand to help the Green Team at Castletroy College in Limerick raise its sixth Green Flag.

Students PJ Allen and Niall McSweeney – members of the Green Schools committee – officially welcomed Rassie Erasmus, whose daughters Nikki and Carli, attend Castletroy College.

During the brief ceremony, Cillian Toland from the school’s Neat streets team outlined some of the green initiatives which are currently being undertaken at Castletroy Collegeby staff, students and other members of the school community.
