This coming school year sees the strongest collaboration with Portlaoise Rugby Football Club since Rugby began here in 2018 under Mr Conor Ryan. The Club have funded 2 scholarships for 2 of our incoming 1st years who have demonstrated a work ethic and willingness to learn which is above and beyond players of their age, whilst showing exceptional respect for teamates, coaches and the Club. We had several applicants and are happy to announce the two winners of that group this evening.

Jack Downey, coming in from Rathineska NS and a strong player on the PRFC on their U13 Team. 

Dylan Clear, coming in from The Heath NS, who has captained his U12 and U13 Team, playing as Full Back.

We look forward to having these lads and the other applicants on our side when the schools’ rugby season begins! Congratulations to all parents whose sons’ applied, as the people who get them to this level and don’t get the shout out as often as they should are you, the parents!

Due to holidays and the normal coming and going during the summer months, the presentations will be made over the coming weeks. No dates have been set yet.
