St Pats boys are fortunate to receive rugby coaching on a weekly basis from Connacht Community Rugby Officer Will Thornton. Will takes each class for a six week block.

The boys play tag rugby, which is great for developing their co-ordination, balance and athleticism in a rugby environment that doesn’t require the tackling aspect.

Classes are then invited to go to blitzes in the Corinthians & Galwegians rugby clubs at the end of the term to put their new skills into practice!
