‘Young Taggers’ Raise Money For The ISPCC

‘Young Taggers’ Raise Money For The ISPCC

A kids’ ‘Tag World Cup’ was held at Terenure College RFC on November 1 as a fundraiser in aid of the ISPCC. Read on for more.

On Thursday, November 1, a junior Tag Rugby Festival was held at Terenure College RFC’s Lakelands ground in order to raise money for the ISPCC. The tournament took shape in a World Cup format with the players involved all ‘representing’ the likes of France, New Zealand, Fiji, Ireland, England and Argentina.

What a day it was. In perfect playing conditions, budding young rugby players, both girls and boys, delivered a display of skills, enthusiasm and fun in an event enjoyed immensely by all present.

Ireland campaigned their way to the final but lost out in a close encounter to the Fijian side who, in accordance with reputation, were no strangers to the running game. The battle for third place involved New Zealand and Argentina with the Pumas taking the spoils at the end of a superb contest of tag rugby – the way it should be played.

To top off the day, prizes were given to almost all who took part thanks to the many sponsors who gave their support to this worthy cause.

A special mention of gratitude to not only all the kids present but to Grainne Leach, Sandra Feely and Terenure College RFC for what they did to help raise these funds and contributing to a cause as worthy as the ISPCC (whose website can be found at http://www.ispcc.ie/ ).
