Caroline at the Aviva


On Saturday 1st April, 3rd class pupil Caroline Coughlan played with the Kilkenny RFC Mini Girls in the Aviva Stadium at half time during the Leinster  v’s Wasps Heineken Cup Quarter Final game.  Despite playing in front of 50,000 people, the girls were unfazed and served up a great half time entertainment game.  This was truly a great experience for all the girls. Well done Caroline!
