You know you are approaching rugby royalty when your next opponent is the school which inspired half of the amalgamated alma mater of none other than Ross O’Carroll-Kelly himself! Yes, Castleknock College, one of Leinster’s traditional rugby powers, is crossing the river to meet Gav Maguire’s SCT in Donnybrook at 2:00 tomorrow (Friday). It is a big step up for St. Conleth’s but it is clear that Captain Kevin Dolan and the other boys are ready, having efficiently steam-rolled all of their Section A opposition this season. The whole school is heading down for the match, so we encourage all our parents to come and join us: it is sure to be a historical Conlethian occasion. Admission is 2€ for children and 5€ for adults. But don’t fret the cost: Gav has promised to stand all eligible alumni a victory pint afterwards in Kiely’s!
