Carrick-on-Shannon’s RFC’s Under 9s/10s Minis travelled to the Aviva Stadium last Saturday to take part in a new initiative by the IRFU to encourage and reward the good work been done at Minis level.

Carrick Minis were one of only 16 teams invited to attend the event where they were put through their paces by some of the IRFU’s best coaches while also getting the opportunity to play on the hallowed turf of the Aviva Stadium. The experience is sure to be one that will stay with this group of players for a very long time to come.
