Patrick Lyons, Dylan Costelloe and Stephen O'Brien have just returned from an U18 tournament in April in Cherbourg France where they recorded several wins including a 30 point win against Switzerland. Patrick Lyons led the team as Captain and is heading on scholarship to Barking Abbey in London while Dylan Costelloe heads on scholarship to Plymouth. The U15 team will see more action over the summer and will travel to Denmark at Christmas with the Irish U17 team for a Nordic International Tournament. Mark Rohan played a prominent role on the 2012 U16 Irish team and formed part of the U17 Develpment Squad while Kyle Cunningham was capped against Wales and played on the U16 team that defeated England in Bristol. Well done to all of the boys in being selected to represent their Country. It is a great honour.
