St. Mary's College RFC:
Leinster Youth Representatives

St. Mary's College RFC had two representatives playing last Friday in Donnybrook - Senan Phelan playing with the Leinster U18’s youth team, against team-mate Ben Howard who was playing for the Leinster U18’s school's team!

Senan had a flawless first half but their team was out-gunned by a strong school's side who made it extremely difficult to break through a well-disciplined defence. Ben played in the 2nd half and was a force to be reckoned with on the pitch!

All in all it was great to see crowds in the stands again and a great warm-up game for the upcoming interprovincials - well done lads - keep doing us proud!

'Give It a Try'

St. Mary's College RFC are proud to have brought the Canterbury 'Give It A Try' program to Templeville Road from Wednesday the 28th of July from 6pm to 7pm - it is now running every Wednesday for 8 weeks.

This is a fantastic opportunity for any girls interested in trying rugby in a safe and fun environment. The course is designed to introduce girls to the sport of rugby through non-contact games and skills development. It is 8 weeks of fun in the sun (hopefully!).

For further information please email Sarah Brennan Fallon at or sign up for the course “Canterbury GIAT” through the link below:

St Marys College RFC - “it’s a girl's club”!


The IRFU and Dolphin RFC have created a brilliant video showing how much fun this program will be:
