The 15th Annual Kieran Burke Festival of Rugby

The 15th Annual Kieran Burke Festival of Rugby

(27 Feb 2019)

On Sunday 24th February we welcomed 620 children from 25 clubs across Leinster to take part in the 15th annual Kieran Burke Festival of Rugby to celebrate the life of one our most cherished members. The event was, as ever, a huge success with a great time had by all and some serious rugby skills on display.

This year saw Navan RFC see off some stiff competition to lift the trophy at the end of the day and the team were suitably pleased with their achievement as you can see in our photo gallery (link below).

An event such as this takes a huge amount of planning and preparation and the club would like to thank everyone who played their part in making it such as success. Luke Sloper's team put in trojan work and we thank them and everyone else who helped out on the day: marshalling traffic, staffing the first aid posts, coaching the teams, serving refreshments and taking care of all the other pieces that make up the jigsaw. We are very grateful to Leinster Rugby for their support and to Peter Dooley and Noel Reid for joining us on the day.

Most importantly, we would like thank the Burke Family for their ongoing support and commitment to the festival.

We've put together a momento of the day which will hopefully give a sense of the fun and enjoyment it brings to everyone:

An extended gallery of photos from the day can be found here:

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2020!
