Balbriggan RFC hosted a Leinster Summer Camp last week. The camp was a huge success, being the second biggest camp run by Leinster Rugby this year.
138 children from ages 6 – 12 took part. Most children were from Balbriggan but some came from a variety of other clubs in the North east and as far afield as Barcelona and the US. Coaches came from Leinster Rugby to teach the young players a variety of skills needed for rugby, but they also ensured that the kids had fun too. On Wednesday the players were treated to a visit from Leinster players Darragh Fanning and local legend Jamie Hagan, who just this week re-signed for Leinster. On Friday, the final day of the camp, there was ice-cream for all the players, courtesy of Balbriggan RFC. Each child received a certificate to show that they had learned to play the Leinster way.
Much thanks and credit must go to Gerry McCleery of Leinster Rugby and all his coaching staff for a great week.
