It’s been that way for a long time unfortunately. A lot of my minor team for example stopped playing right before adult level. Think only 3 still play including myself, with only 1 making the Senior team. Throw in the fact that two of our most promising players are now playing rugby for Terenure and you can get the feel of what we are up against.
But, to the club’s credit, a lot of time and effort is going into the Juvenile section and it’s brilliant to see so many kids up there on the weekends. We have a lot of real ‘club’ men & women involved now and we’ll hopefully reap the rewards in the future once we can get new grounds, clubhouse etc sorted.
