Teams came from all over Ireland in large numbers - Letterkenny made the long trip south with two squads - and there was plenty of great rugby action on the pitches at Ashbourne RFC.
It was a fantastic day for the young players but also the volunteers who put in long hours coaching and travelling with their teams.
Mark Russell, Group Sponsorship Manager at Aviva, said: "We are delighted to sponsor the IRFU Mini Rugby Festivals. It is our real hope that this sponsorship will unearth and nurture the next generation of Irish rugby players.
"We believe sport is important in the development of children and is at the heart of a healthy active lifestyle helping instill teamwork and leadership, providing children the motivation to perform at their best whatever their ability."
