Message from Nay Cantillon President of Young Munster RFC On behalf of Young Munster Rugby Football Club and all its members and staff, I am absolutely delighted to extend a hearty welcome to all players, officials and supporters visiting Tom Clifford Park throughout this season. Following in the footsteps of my father, Jimmy Cantillon, who held the office of President on two occasions, I feel immensely proud and privileged to have been granted this highest of honours for myself and my family and feel humbled by the challenge that is presented to me. In our 116 years, we have always prided ourselves on our hospitality and I’m sure this year will be no different. Now that the professional game has brought so many changes, it is all the more important that the rugby tradition of friendliness and hospitality is not diminished. I assure you that Young Munster RFC will not be distracted from our endeavours to make your visit a pleasant one. Young Munster RFC is representative of so many of the best virtues of rugby football in Ireland, not least; it’s enduring and invaluable contribution to the community in the area. Last season has been a memorable one for our club, both on and off the field. On the playing front the club is thriving at all levels and is benefiting from the structures put in place over the last couple of years. The success of our teams is complimented by improvements in our facilities which now include a purpose built All-Weather Pitch and a state-of-the-art Gymnasium in Tom Clifford Park. This year, it is our goal to install floodlighting on our main pitch, which will enable us to play games on very popular Friday evenings and other nights when required. During the summer months we have carried out refurbishment works to our main pitch to ensure the best possible playing surface for the coming season and we look forward to watching many games of quality rugby that can be enjoyed by both players and supporters alike. I would like to wish our Club Captain, Shane O’Neill, and his squad, our Director of Rugby Mike Prendergast, our Assistant Coach John Broderick and all other Coaches, Managers, Background Personnel, Ground and Facilities Personnel, the very best of luck for the coming season and success in their relative competitions. You have our total support. I would also like to thank all those behind the scenes for their hard work and voluntary support for Young Munster and I look forward to working with them in the coming season in generating a new found optimism for Young Munster as a club with real potential. Here at Young Munster we believe that properly and competitively structured club rugby is imperative for the development of players and the success of Munster and Irish rugby. It is our policy to encourage and develop players of all skills levels at Tom Clifford Park and we are happy to do so into the future. To run a leading first division club these days takes huge effort and a lot of money. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors who contribute to the running and success of our club. I thank Bus Éireann, our main sponsor since 1993 and the longest lasting sponsorship in Irish Rugby football, for their continued, much valued support of Young Munster. I also thank our own Gerry O’Shea & GGL Security, Syncreon, long-time supporters, Peter Clohessy & The Sin Bin, Jack Storan and Donal Mulcahy of Rasher’s Bar and Barry Leddin of Leddin’s Bar as official sponsors. In these difficult financial times for the club we are indeed very grateful. Just as their contributions are important to our club, it is equally important that members and friends of Young Munster in turn support them and all our other advertisers and sponsors when and wherever possible. The club would not survive, let alone achieve success, without the on-going support of all our sponsors. Finally to our 1st, 2nd, 3rd, U-21, Women and Underage squads may I wish you all a successful year. My focus for the year will be to play my part in enhancing the proud tradition of Young Munster RFC which in my view is to excel on the playing field, to run the club with focus and vision and to enjoy the company of our members, dedicated supporters and guests. Have a wonderful season everyone. Nay Cantillon President Young Munster RFC

Message from John Hussey President IRFU to Young Munster RFC

As President of the Irish Rugby Football Union, I congratulate Nay Cantillon in his role as President and extend to all club members my hope that Young Munster RFC have an enjoyable and successful season. Following the disappointment of being beaten in the semi-final play-offs last season, I have no doubt team captain Shane O’Neill and his squad will be in determined mood to make another mark in this season’s re-constructed Ulster Bank League. I believe the new format, with a record 52 clubs involved in two divisions, will prove to be a very successful one and that it will generate greater interest and activity in the clubs on match days. This would be in keeping with the wishes of the IRFU, whose policy is to maintain a vibrant club scene throughout Irish rugby. In this regard, I pay tribute to all our volunteers. They make an invaluable contribution to the success of the game and in the current economic circumstances their role is even more important. I also take this opportunity to thank Ulster bank, the official Community Partner to the IRFU, for their sponsorship of the Ulster Bank League, the Irish Club International team and the Ulster Bank Rugby Force initiative. John Hussey President – IRFU

* Dublin businessman John Hussey created a piece of sporting history when he becomes the first member from St. Mary’s College RFC (founded 111 years ago) to be enrolled as President of the Irish Rugby Football Union, at the Union’s annual Council Meeting in the Aviva Stadium, on July 22nd. He assumed the highest office in Irish rugby following a life-long association with St. Mary’s College. As a wing threequarters he was a member of the schools’ junior and senior cup teams but on joining the club and being capped for the Leinster junior interprovincial team in 1966, he had his career cut short by a succession of injuries. He was elected President of the club in 1988 – ’89. A well know chartered accountant, Hussey’s high profile business life includes a 12 years stint as Managing Partner of Arthur Young & Company, after which he spent a number of years as a director of two companies involved in structured financing. He was also a consultant to a number of organisations in the areas of governance and strategic planning. He has held directorships in a number of other companies, including New Stadium Ltd which has been responsible for the development of the Aviva Stadium. President of the Leinster Branch in 1998-’99, he was first elected to the IRFU in 1996, since when he has made a major contribution to Irish rugby. He was Chairman of the Strategic Review Committee which produced the first IRFU Strategic Plan (2003 – ’07). As part of this process the Union made changes to its laws to create a new Management Committee. Hussey became its first Chairman and served the maximum two three year terms (2003 – ’09) in that capacity. He also chaired a number of other committees including the IRFU Academy and the IRFU Charitable Trust, of which he remains a Trustee. He was also Chairman of the Magners League (now RaboDirect PRO 12) for a seven years period noted for the tournament’s consolidation and growth in stature and popularity in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and led the negotiations which brought recently the admission of two teams from Italy. The 124th President of the IRFU is married to Patricia and has two sons, John Paul and David.


Message from Ellvena Graham of Ulster Bank With the 2010/2011 Ulster Bank League complete, the attention quickly turns from the post mortem of the past campaign to the season ahead - a chance for all clubs to start on the same foot and challenge for new honours in the 2011/2012 Ulster Bank League in their division. Rugby at the professional level will always receive the highest profile, but a growing and vibrant club league is crucial to the ongoing success of the sport. Local clubs and club players are the life-blood of the game and the Ulster Bank League in 2011/2012 will no doubt showcase some of the stars of the future senior international scene. Ulster Bank strengthened its link with Irish Rugby last year, becoming the Official Community Partner to the IRFU, a partnership which includes title sponsorship of the All-Ireland Club League along with the Irish Club International team until 2014. Our drive into the heart of rugby in Ireland, into the club and the community, was highlighted with the creation last year of a new club volunteer initiative, Ulster Bank RugbyForce, a programme designed to help unite club members and local volunteers to improve their club and community rugby facilities. An excellent response saw clubs from all over the country enter with four lucky clubs winning ₏5,000 worth of goods and resources. The four winning clubs (Wexford Wanderers RFC, Ballina RFC, Thomond RFC and Ballymoney Rugby Club) took part in the recent Ulster Bank RugbyForce Winning Weekends, which brought together their members to spend the day renovating their facilities. See www.ulsterbank.com/rugby for more details and look out for your chance to enter your club in next season’s Ulster Bank RugbyForce programme. We are greatly looking forward to next season and wish all competing teams the very best of luck. Ellvena Graham, Director of Business Services Ireland, Ulster Bank

Beautiful Beautiful Munsters Star of my soul fade away, I sigh when I think of Young Munster With whom I played many a game Dublin can boast of Old Wesley, Cork of the College and Con, But Limerick can boast of Young Munster, whose best games are yet to be seen. Beautiful Beautiful Munsters Star of my soul fade away, I sigh when I think of Young Munster With whom I played many a game Now there was Bohs in red, UCC, Garryowen are the boys in blue, With Sunday’s Well, ‘twould be hard to tell, What the Dolphin boys would do, and Cons all white made a right good fight, In the final well they showed, But they all gave it up, for the Bateman Cup Was won by the Yellow Road. Then cheer, boys cheer, for our own fifteen Of black and amber fame, We’re a true home team, and have always been, and we’re proud of Young Munster name Their task well done, their victory won, All glory to them is owed, And we’ll sing our song, sing it all day long, sing hurrah for the Yellow Road. You can go up to the Bombin’ Field on Sunday, Watch the young boys go out to train, Sure it make an old man about sixty, play the game over again. Cover Photo & Photo this page: Conor O’Brien

Message from Andrew Yates, Bus Éireann We at Bus Éireann are thrilled to announce the renewal of our sponsorship with Young Munster RFC for another year. Historically we have had a very successful partnership, and it’s great to see our logo on the black and amber as the club moves forward. CIE personnel have been at the backbone of the club in the past, with Ollie Brown, Sean Gavin, Christy Dickenson, John McCarthy and most recently John McLoughlin all serving as Club President. In my own office, the wall is decorated with pictures of the 1993 All-Ireland winning team, not to mention a framed jersey. Commitment and success go hand in hand and it is no surprise that this club continues to drive forward considering how many people have been involved during the 116 year existence. After finishing third in the AIL last year, I sincerely hope that this year’s team can improve on last year’s efforts. With a new captain in Shane O’Neill and under the excellent direction of Mike Prendergast I’m sure the future is bright. Best wishes to new President Nay Cantillon, the coaching staff, and most importantly all the players as the club embarks on a new season. Andrew Yates Bus Eireann

Young Munster RFC Memories‌


Young Munster RFC Memories‌


coloured socks and liquorice all-sorts In a by-gone era of rugby football on this island, it was the accepted tradition to wear club socks on international duty. This was an acknowledgement by the unions of the important role that clubs played in the development of players, many of these coming from underage ranks right through to the highest possible level of this great oval ball game. Sadly this popular and gracious practice was unceremoniously booted to touch when an influential body of high -ranking referees argued that they had difficulty identifying the owners of illegal stray boots at ruck time. One top international ref described the task of identification as “similar to looking into a bag of liquorice allsorts” so the great tradition came to an ignominious halt, the referees winning the argument that uniformity in the hosiery department by competing teams was the only way forward. What a pity! How wonderful it would have been, particularly during World Cup 2011, if that practice had been restored. We would have thrilled at the sight of the light blue of Garryowen’s Conor Murray and Damian Varley, the black and blue of Shannon’s Tony Buckley, Donnacha Ryan and Jerry Flannery and, of course the famed black and amber socks of Keith Earls and Paul O’Connell of Young Munster as they did themselves, their club, their city of Limerick and their country proud in New Zealand.

Other local clubs may not agree, but Young Munster fans are globally acknowledged as exceptionally loyal. Team performances do not always make match viewing a totally relaxing experience for home supporters at Tom Clifford Park, and the black and amber hordes have at times been subjected to a nervous strain unparalleled since the days of the early martyrs, but their deep-rooted loyalty is never dented. As a rugby reporter of many years, it is always a privilege and a joy to cover games at this club. The courtesy and co-operation the media receive at Young Munster RFC is exceptional and for that we are particularly grateful. Long may it continue. Aidan Corr, Limerick Rugby Correspondent

Young Munster Women’s Rugby Young Munster Women’s XV formed in 2007 and currently competes in Division 2 (South) of the All-Ireland League. With the girls entering their fifth year of rugby in 2011/2012, they are continuing to progress and build on their experience and it’s great to see a host of new faces turning up for training again this year. At their awards night for last season, back row Sarah Quin was presented with the award for Best Newcomer and also picked up the prize for Player’s Player of the Year. Sarah was selected for the Munster A development squad for the recent Representative Interprovincials and she scored the only try for Munster in their 13-0 win over Connacht – a huge achievement for Sarah after only her first season of rugby. Edel Hannon, who will captain Young Munster for the new season, picked up the award for Most Improved Player. Second row Edel was selected for the Connacht A development side against Munster joining fellow Young Munster player, half-back Ailish Toner. Edel made the Connacht senior side in the game v Leinster. Congratulations to all our girls who played in the interprovincials, we are very proud to see each Young Munster name on the team sheets. Behind the scenes, Eddie Montgomery, head coach for the last number of years, has decided to step into the team manager role for the new season. Greg Costelloe has taken up the role as head coach and will be assisted in the forwards by Derek McMahon. Trish Montgomery retains the role of Chairperson. Additional backroom personnel include Phil Hackett and Jackie McCarthy-O’Brien.
