You are no doubt aware that the club operates a coffee/tea/hot chocolate facility in the clubhouse during the Saturday morning sessions and this is under the supervision of Karen Pullen. Karen has transformed the facility to such an extent that everyone looks forward to availing of it. She has been very fortunate to have had support from a number of volunteers who have helped her out from time to time but she now wants to put a proper structure in place which would not see the same people press-ganged into helping week in, week out, and would allow Karen to see how her own family are doing on the rugby pitch!.

Karen is now looking for volunteers to help out inside the clubhouse for one hour on Saturday mornings. The more people who volunteer the fewer times she will call on individuals. The idea is that she will be able to draw up a roster of volunteers; anyone down for a particular day and who subsequently discovers an inability to attend, can swop with another volunteer.

If anyone is willing and able to help will you call in to the clubhouse on Saturday and say “Hi” to Karen.

In a break with tradition this year’s Munster Rugby Summer Camp in Tralee is in July – a much more suitable time for participants. Our Camp runs from Monday 10th July to Friday 14th July, from 9.30am to 1.30pm each day that week.
While the cost per child is €85, additional children from the same family can attend for the discounted rate of €75 per child.
This year there is a Special Promotion Rate of €75 per child for all those who book before 5th May 2017.
Each participant will receive an Official Summer Camp pack of an Adidas Summer Camp T-Shirt, Adidas Shorts, Adidas socks, Draw-string Bag, Mouth Guard and one Junior ticket to a Munster pre-season match.
NB: Children who participate in the camps will get the chance to make new friends, learn more about rugby values such as team work, respect and integrity, and also become more aware of the importance of physical fitness. All this while learning to develop the basic rugby skills of passing, tackling (in a controlled environment), evasion and kicking. Most of all we guarantee lots of fun!
To facilitate the appropriate attention, participants will be divided by their age into groups. Central to the Munster Rugby Summer Camps philosophy is ensuring the introduction to the game of Rugby in a safe and controlled manner.
The Camps will be managed and run by fully accredited I.R.F.U. Mini Rugby coaches. All Summer Camp staff have undertaken the National Garda Vetting process required to comply with the IRFU policy regarding recruitment and vetting to work in age grade rugby.

Tralee RFC President Andrew Fitzgerald and Munster Branch President Gerry O’Shea make a presentation to our Munster u18s Joe O’Connor and Joe Quilter at the clubhouse, including parents Grainne & Brian Quilter; Club Chairman Tom Quilter and Jim O’Connor.
