A Big Week Ahead For Birr Youths Rugby

   07 Apr 2017

There is a great buzz around the club this week as we all look forward to cheering on the U14 and U15 boys who are both contesting Leinster League Finals. In addition our U13 boys are also in action when they take on Naas White in a Leinster League Q/F replay on Sunday. First up are our U15 boys who travel to North Kildare on Saturday to take on the host team in an eagerly awaited final. These boys under the tutelage of coaches Richard Dolan, Brian Hogan and Willie Burns have excelled this season and are a joy to watch. They came through a tough semi-final against Roscrea which will steel them for the challenge on Saturday. The second final takes place next Wednesday night in Tullamore at 7 pm when the U14 boys renew acquaintances with Edenderry. This will be the third meeting of these sides following Midland and Leinster League games earlier in the season. A draw at home followed by a narrow loss away to Edenderry suggests that this final will be another tight game. The boys with their coaches Tony Morris, Frank Higgins and Stephen Niland have worked very hard this year and hopefully they will prevail on the night. Please come along and cheer on the boys!
