Minister John Curran TD, who, along with Kurkri, sponsored the event, is certainly used to tackling various political issues, but he traded his politician's hat for a scrum cap and gum shield to help the club record a memorable achievement.
"It was an honour to be President when such an event is happening," Clondalkin RFC President Winston Jebb said after the event.
"I would like to congratulate everyone involved. It really was a great effort by all those involved in the underage set-up here.
"All the players and tacklers also deserve credit for all their work. It is great to see so many kids up in the club and enjoying sport and rugby every weekend and I think there is a lot more to come youth wise from the club," he added.
Underage coach and first team prop Tom Duffy added: "A great day was had by all. We had a lot of support from within the club and outside too. I would like particularly like to thank all of our sponsors."
So successful was the event that Clondalkin will attempt to break the world record of 4700 tackles in an hour next year.
