Cork Constitution are pulling out all the stops again for this repeat of last season’s All-Ireland League Division 1 final. The club is designating each home game with a theme and Saturday’s one is ‘community and charity’, with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul the key beneficiary.
The club game is alive and well and clubs have a huge role to play in the local fabric. Cork Constitution have made this a cornerstone of their ethos and their home games this season have seen large crowds, themed weekends and great rugby.
This Saturday, the Temple Hill outfit is joining up with the Society of St. Vincent De Paul for the occasion.
The matchday lunch, bring a gift to Santa for the kids party and a collection at half-time are some of the activities they are organising for the afternoon.
This year is the 20th anniversary of the All-Ireland League and Cork Con are inviting the teams of the 1990/91 season to return to the club this Saturday.
December 4 is a special day as St. Mary’s College played Cork Con on the opening day of the All-Ireland League back on October 6, 1990 and this is an opportunity to invite players back to remember the start of the AIL.
On the rugby front, Cork Con welcome St. Mary’s to Temple Hill with the clubs currently in second and third respectively in the top half of Division 1A, and it promises to be another great battle between these two top flight regulars.
So pull on the winter gear this weekend and get down to Temple Hill to check out some top class rugby and a club that is truly engaged with the local community.
