The rugby world has taken notice: Gav Maguire’s SCT are a force with which to be reckoned as the pitches of Leinster are littered with the spent hulks of supposed rugby powers which have been left by the wayside on this glorious and historic march to the McMullen Cup Final. The Leinster Illuminati will be there (Read their preview official preview here). Mr. Kelleher will be there, taking attendance. You need to be there, too! 3:00 kick-off at Donnybrook Stadium, this Tuesday, the 23rd. All the current Conlethians will be out in force, and we are calling on parents and alumni to join us.
It was 1986 when St. Conleeth’s last won this cup. It was not a great year for music, with Chris de Burgh ruling the Irish charts and ‘Mr. Mister’ placing three songs in the year-end American top ten. But there was some inspiration deeper in the charts that year, as St. Conleth’s SCT hit their opponents like a ‘sledgehammer’ and the team’s movement on the pitch was ‘like a chain reaction’, leaving their fans on ‘the edge of heaven’ and ‘taking their breath away’. The 2016 version will have their own chosen tunes pumping through their Beats as they get psyched for the biggest match of their lives. Do not be mistaken. This is it. ‘The Final Countdown’ starts now!
