Tullamore Rugby/ Leinster Rugby.
Our school works in partnership with Tullamore Rugby Club. We are lucky to have coach  John Burns come to our school and share and pass to us his rugby experience and knowledge of the game. Rugby skils are taught using Tag Rugby. The children love it and it is one of the most popular activities for senior classes.. They are learning about rugby, how to handle pass and play as well as language associated with the game.  The children also focus on the Fundamental Movement Skills of dodging and side stepping during these sessions. It's all about giving them a taste or flavour of a well loved sport in our country.

We really appreciate the support of Tullamore RFC and Leinster Rugby for providing these coaching sessions. We have also been honoured to welcome some of the top rugby trophies in the world. Leinster and Ireland have enjoyed considerable success in the past and they have kindly given schools the opportunity to share in this success.
