“Giving Back“

“Giving Back“

Cashel RFC needs your help in raising much needed funds for the Irish Guide Dogs Association.

In conjunction with Cashel RFC and local primary schools, we would like to invite you to participate and help us raise funds for a deserving charity ‘The Irish Guide Dogs Association of Ireland’. This charity not only provides Guide Dogs but also Companion Dogs for children and adults with disabilities other than blindness.

In association with the I.D.G.A. we will host a sponsored walk from the Rock of Cashel to Cashel RFC this Sunday, March 3. We will have guide dogs present on the day and we would encourage you all, parents and children, to come along on the day to meet them. We will be lead off by Willie Morrissey and Larry Flynn on the bagpipes.

Meet at 1.30pm at the Rock car park with walk commencing at 1.45pm

Upon arrival at the CRFC clubhouse there will be light refreshments and a day of fun and games. Old runners/football boots for field activities are advised.

Please bring your completed sponsorship cards on the day and all proceed go to the charity. Any queries please contact Tony on 0868208143

Mini Rugby

On Sunday morning last we had 400 kids take to Spafield Park and great support on the side lines from all the clubs concerned.

Under 10s

Cashel went into the Under 10 blitz determined to make up for their loss of form on their last outing against Kilfeacle. Their first match was against a very big Clonmel side. From the kickoff Cashel were all over Clonmel. The Cashel lads moved the ball very well with some excellent passing and running on display. Cashel were first on the score board with an excellent try by Steven Ferncombe. This gave the confidence Cashel needed to push on and score more tries.

By half time it was 3 nil, following tries from David Clark and Joseph Lawrence. Clonmel to their credit didn’t give up and were soon rewarded with a try in the corner. Clonmel now had their tails up and following some very good rucking managed to get the ball out to the wing and were once again on the score board. At 3-2 Cashel didn’t panic, and it wasn’t long until Joseph Lawrence was across the white wash to score a much needed try. Clonmel continued to push Cashel right to the end but Cashel defended well and secured victory with a great try by Connor O’Neil. It finished 5-2 to Cashel.

U11s narrowly continue winning run

On a crisp, sunny Sunday morning Cashel U11s played two highly entertaining and competitive games. First up was a strong well organised Carrick team. This one was decided by the one try. A brilliant solo run from Jack McGrath ending with a side step that Brian O’Driscoll would have been proud of.

The team worked well together with forwards Daniel Moloney, Jaymes O’Sullivan and Sean Kavanagh bossing things up front. The back line was run well by half backs William Hayes and Connor O’Dwyer with good running and passing by Ross Whelan and Euan Ryan.

Our second match against Clonmel was another tough game. This again was decided one score with tries from forwards Tom Tobin, Martin Paul O’Dwyer and Ben White.

We didn’t have this one our own way by any means thanks to brave tackling from Eoin Murphy and Robert Murphy it might have been different. Our backs again ran the ball well with strong running from Shane Ryan, Padraic Flanagan and Paraic Brosnan.

Thanks for the great support as always from the parents and thanks to our guests for a great mornings rugby.

Under 12s

Cashel’s forwards of Luke Kevin, Sean O’Neill, Dylan Foley, Joshua O’Dwyer, Aiden Maher and Christopher Geraghty all played intelligently linking well in attack and supporting each other. Our half backs of Cathal and John Ryan both combined well with the Molloy connection of Kevin and Kate midfield and have been a constant threat. Tim Hyde and Seanie Ryan both showed moments of magic. Brian O’Connor and Oisin O’ Suilleabhain with Luke O’Flynn and Janis were punching holes in attack creating exciting rugby to watch.

Over all this was a great morning’s entertainment. On behalf of everybody at Cashel RFC, a huge thank you to both visiting sides. To all the parents who attended last Sunday morning and especially the girls who catered for over 400 people with refreshments after in the Clubhouse, well done! This was a huge morning of fun and was enjoyed by all who were involved.
