September 2017, the IRFU launched the ‘Spirit of Rugby’ initiative which aims to support players, coaches, volunteers and parents. It’s primary purpose is to educate those within the game about their rights and responsibilities both on and off the field. The aim of the Spirit programme is to embody and promote the core values of the game – Respect, Inclusivity, Integrity, Fun and Excellence. Safeguarding of minis and youth players is also a TOP priority, ensuring that players develop to the best of their ability in a safe and fun rugby environment.

Carrick on Shannon RFC were honoured to receive the first ever ‘Spirit of Rugby Award’ in recognition of their outstanding work in Safeguarding. Club President, Peter Layden and Club Welfare Officer, Maeve Lenehan were invited to the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 10th February where Maeve received the award from Philip Orr, IRFU President, at a pre-match lunch. Afterwards, they watched the Ireland vs Italy game from the comfort of the Presidents Box.

Well done to Maeve and all at Carrick on Shannon RFC for the great work carried out in the area of Child Welfare.

Carrick Minis (6 yrs to 11yrs – Boys & Girls)

 U8’s and 9’s Connacht blitz

A combined U8 and U9 squad travelled to Castlebar last Saturday to take on Connacht’s finest in their Connacht Blitz. The determination displayed by the U8’s playing up a level for the first time left most spectators mesmerised.

First up was a strong Barna Team but the combined Carrick team with a belief in their ability and training battled to a fine victory.

Next up was a big strong Gort side, in an ill tempered affair marred by foul play and questionable refereeing  Carrick was narrowly defeated.

Finally, Carrick played Monieva in a sparkling fast moving game played in the best spirit of the game where both sides played attractive open rugby, Carrick prevailing with a last minute try to seal victory.

The coaching staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents and players for their commitment throughout the year. We would also like to remind the under 8s that they have a special blitz next week in Mullingar.

U10’s Connacht Blitz

Carrick U10s had a great day at the Connacht blitz in Ballina. They took part in four tough games beating Loughrea and Castlebar, drawing with Ballina and losing to Gort. Great effort from all the players, they have really improved over the season and all their hard work showed on the day.

 

Carrick Youths

U16 Cup v Castlebar

Carrick U16s travelled to Castlebar for the first round of the Connaught plate on Saturday last.

The match was evenly contested at 3 points apiece when Castlebar took full advantage following an injury to Alan Crowe scoring a try just before half time.

Midway through the second half Castlebar went over for a further two tries leaving the score 20-3. However Carrick rallied with two tries from James Maguire, one following a quick tap penalty from Paul Woods and the other from a line out catch where on landing, Castlebar decided not to commit to the maul so Maguire turned on a sixpence and waltzed through untouched for a fine individual try.

It was now 20-15 with 5 minutes to go and Carrick with nothing to lose laid siege to the Castlebar line. After continued infringements the referee warned the home team that if they were to infringe again he would award a penalty try but time was not on Carrick’s side and soon after the final whistle went.

Carrick: Sean Lenehan, Conor Hawksby, Tom McKeon, Matthew Earley (c), Liam Phelan, Paul Woods, Alan Crowe, James Og Maguire, Turlough Moore, Roarke Toal, Cathal Gormley, Adam O’Connor, James Maguire, Ethan Beirne, Robin Weaver and Liam Taylor.

Congratulations to Abbey College Boyle

Carrick on Shannon RFC would like to congratulate Abbey College Boyle on winning the Connacht Junior Emerging Cup last Wednesday defeating St. Joseph’s of Foxford by 24 – 18. 

A special congratulations to all the Carrick youths players involved in the squad, to Team Manager – Aengus Martin (Carrick RFC mini’s coach), team coach Colm McWeeney (CCRO Carrick RFC and Connacht).

Fundraiser in aid of the Rebecca Hollidge medical fund

Rebecca has a medical condition that requires her to travel abroad regularly to  receive medical treatment. The costs associated with this treatment is significant and on Friday night March 31st the Hollidge family will host an Auction night in The Bush Hotel to raise funds to help pay for the treatment Rebecca requires. 

Rebecca’s parents Peter and Yvonne are well known within the Carrick rugby community where Peter has coached and refereed for many years at mini’s and youths levels. 

Club members past and present are asked to come along on the night and show their support Peter and his family for this very worthy cause.

Tickets available on the door on the night.
