The sun shone on Co. Carlow rugby club last week as the Aviva Minis festival rolled into town. It was a chance for the hundreds of boys and girls to enjoy a day of fantastic rugby and to tell us who their favourite rugby palyers are.
A pall of sadness and grief hung over the country's rugby grounds as word came through from Paris of the sudden death of Munster head coach Anthony Foley, just as the fifth round of games in the Women's All-Ireland League kicked off. Aisling Crowe rounds up Sunday's fixtures.
The Aviva Minis Festival was in Ballyclare RFC last weekend for the Ulster leg of the festival tour. It was a fantastic day in the club for the hundreds of boys and girls who also got the chance to meet Ireland captain Rory Best.
