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.
The Aviva Minis festival visited UL Bohs recently and it was fun filled day for the hundreds of boys and girls taking part. There was also a special guest appearance from Ireland Women's Captain and UL Bohs player Niamh Briggs.
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.
Ballyclare RFC played host to the first Aviva Mini Festival of the season last Saturday. Over 400 boys and girls took part with teams travelling from all over Ireland. There was also a special guest appearance from Ireland captain Rory Best.
