Schull CC claim first Munster rugby title

History makers: Schull Community College’s U16 rugby team - with their coach Davoren Leung and first aid support Mary Keohane - celebrate winning the Giles Shield final.

THERE were great celebrations at Schull Community College last week when the U16 boys’ rugby team won the Munster Schools Rugby Giles Shield, beating Cashel Community School on a scoreline of 49-19. 

Rugby at Schull Community College has undergone something of a revival in the past two seasons under manager Davoren Leung, which makes this fantastic achievement all the more significant. 

The team received a walkover in the first round against Pobal Scoil na Trionoide of Youghal to reach the quarter-final. They travelled to Killorglin where they soundly defeated Killorglin Intermediate School 43-7. 

They had a tougher challenge against Charleville CBS in the semi-final, scraping a one-point victory in a tight game that finished 20-19. 

In Bandon last Wednesday, captain Asa Curran lifted the Giles Shield, the first ever silverware for rugby at Schull Community College in the school’s 35-year history.
