Jack Kavanagh Trust fundraising match
Nick Timoney (6th Year) captained the Spiritan side in the Jack Kavanagh Trust fundraising match held last night (20/3/14) in Donnybrook.
Conor Oliver, Jeremy Loughman, Joey Carbery, Jack Power (all 6th Year) and Hugo Keane (5th Year) also joined with boys from our sister Colleges, St Michael’s, St Mary’s and Templeogue to take on the best of Belvedere, Clongowes and Gonzaga.
The Jesuits won by 3 points but it was more about the occasion and it was great to see the game supported by so many Ireland and Leinster players – Robert Kearney, Fergus McFadden, Gordon D’Arcy (all Clongowes), Cian Healy (Belvedere), Leo Cullen, Ian Madigan, Jordi Murphy, Luke Fitzgerald, Brendan Macken (all Blackrock), Luke McGrath, Dan Leavy and Noel Reid (all St Michael’s) – and a large attendance. Alain Rolland (Class of 1984) was the Referee for the game.
I thank the Principals and Coaches from the other schools for making it possible and I particularly thank Mr Fitzsimons and Mr Pickering for their contribution to the management and organisation of the event from a Blackrock perspective.
