Last season saw a new management team take the helm with the Thirds. Barry McNamara has assumed the role of Coach, ably supported in his role by assistants Keith White and Daragh O’Doherty. Aidan O’Donovan also has taken up the role of Team Manager.
The year culminated in an impressive assault on the prestigious Webb Cup which finished with the lads coming up just short, despite a heroic effort in Thomond Park.This experience has served to develop a resolve in this squad and they are looking forward to getting stuck into their rugby this year.
Thirds rugby offers the opportunity to those who want be involved in the game but may not have the time or flexibility to play Senior or Seconds rugby. It has a great mix of experienced and inexperienced, young and not so young, very talented and those still learning the game. It has a social side to it that may not be as evident at the higher levels and provides a great platform stay involved in the game.
We would encourage anyone who falls into this bracket to get in touch and join up with the lads.
