The Aldi Play Rugby programme has allowed over 100,000 primary school children to get a taste of rugby. On Wednesday 16 schools, from Inishowen to Bantry Bay, took part in this year’s Aldi Play Rugby National Festival.

Ireland stars Jack McGrath and Katie Fitzhenry were on hand at the Aviva Stadium and they couldn’t resist joining in on the Tag rugby action at the home of Irish Rugby.
