The u15 School Rugby team played Midleton CBS in Rathcooney on Thursday the 26th of October. The young Colàiste/Gaelcholàiste Choilm side showed great heart and determination throughout the game but were beaten by a very physical CBS team. Standout players on the day were Sean Dore, Emmanuel Obodoechi and Tighernach O Leary (Captain). The u15's will have plenty of more games this year to develop their game.
