Ennis, Munster Youth Club of the Year

on .

Ennis RFC are the proud recipients of this season's Munster Youth Club of the Year. The award was presented to Club President, Gerry Buggy by Munster rugby player Tommy O'Donnell at the annual awards ceremony in the Maryborough Hotel in Cork on April 30th last. It was especially fitting that the award was presented by Tommy as he has previously visited the club and was extremely impressed with the structures and facilities in place.

This award is a massive accolade for the club to achieve, especially so, given the very strong competition from all other clubs in Munster. It comes as a result of many years hard work by all club members and associates. Players, coaches, mentors, parents and the club's Executive committee have all played their part in laying the foundations for this award.

John Colleran, the clubs Youth Officer is in the very happy position of overseeing all the youth teams who have performed so exceptionally well in their various competitions. John wishes to thank all the coaches, players and parents for their dedication throughout the season.

The U.13's reached Cup and League finals The U.14'S won their Conference competition and were unfortunately were beaten in their Cup final by a well drilled amalgamation of two Limerick clubs, Richmond and Presentation.
The U.15's won their league and were victorious in a one day all- Ireland competition hosted by Corinthians RFC in Galway.
The U.16's reached two semi finals and one final in the three competitions they were involved in and were unlucky not to bring home silverware.
The U.18's despite not performing quite as well as their peers, displayed a strong level of commitment throughout the season and a number of them have emerged as strong contenders to put pressure on some of their adult counterparts next season.

Gerry Buggy praised the efforts of all club members who work tirelessly in a totally voluntary capacity to ensure the club continues to cater, week in week out for possibly the largest number of underage players in the whole of Munster.
Coaches are continuously developing their skills both on and off the pitch to ensure our players receive the very best tutelage. Likewise, the club is constantly upgrading facilities and equipment. All of these efforts have combined in the receipt of this prestigious award.

Gerry would like to thank ttm, the clubs main sponsor and all of the businesses who so generously subscribe to the Club Yearbook which is currently available.
The club have no intention of resting on it's laurels. Plans are already in place for further development next season and the club hope to be able to offer it's young members the opportunity to hone their fitness, dietary and skill levels throughout the summer months with the introduction of personalised training programmes.

"While success is brilliant, the ethos of the club remains the same. We want every child who comes through our gates to enjoy themselves, develop friendships and learn a game that will open doors for them all over the world" says Gerry.

The club is always looking for new members, both players and coaches. So if you think you might like to give rugby a "try", why not pay a visit to Ennis RFC.

To celebrate the amazing season, Ennis RFC is hosting a Youth Day in the club on Saturday May 9th. Medal presentations will take place as will various other award presentations. The club would like to invite all Youth players and their parents to attend.

Pride of Place will obviously go to the Munster Youth Club if the Year Award.Award_winners_1415_article_rdax_80.jpginpho_00926719_rdax_80.jpg
