Rackard League mini

The Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Mini-Sevens competitions are now reaching their exciting climax with several schools looking forward to resuming action after the Easter break. These matches are not to be missed as they include all the high octane drama that you would expect as each team battles it out for this year’s silverware.

The newly created shield competitions have been hugely successful this year with 21 teams still in the hunt for glory despite losses earlier in the competition. Huge credit must be given to Allianz and the teachers and volunteers involved with teams for making this happen.

  All matches are at approx. 12.30.
