Calling all College Show-jumpers.
 
Saturday 29th April sees the All-Ireland Showjumping Championship for teams in the County Showgrounds in Enniscorthy. 
 
There is a team competition with terrific prizes. 1st place team wins a €1500 HSI training bursary and a €500 cheque and championship cup, with other prizes for 2nd and 3rd and rosettes 1-6.  The top 10 teams qualify for Millstreet on Sunday 6th August next, along with an individual championship.
 
Enniscorthy also is the day for the open individual championships and the novice individual championships with a €500 HSI bursary in each competition.  As this is outside the League there is no restriction on team formation. If you are coming to Enniscorthy please remember that it is a grass arena and studs should be worn to keep a good grip.
 
It would be really good to end our year on a high note, so I am appealing for as many riders as possible. I hope that you might consider attending if at all possible. If you are in a position to attend could you please text me the details of rider and pony and whether you wish to have your son or daughter on a team and/or the individual open or individual novice championships.
 
In the meantime I hope that you have a very happy Easter with your family.
 
Many thanks,
 
Paul Cuddihy.

This was the final game of a long season and both schools were determined to finish with some silverware. Kilkenny started with intent but Gerard's defence stood firm and repelled numerous attacks. Gerard's on the other hand were much more clinical and got an early try on the board with their first attack. Kilkenny responded immediately with a penalty, 5-3 after 15. Kilkenny wings Awonusi and Onilenla looked dangerous every time they got the ball but could not get over the Gerard's line.

Three weeks previous Kilkenny lined out in the Vinnie Murray final and although dominating the match had the heartache of giving away two intercept tries. It seemed as if lightening was about to strike again as one of the Gerard's backs picked off a pass and scooted under the posts. Gerard's led 12-3. Kilkenny again dominated territory for the remainder of the half and appeared to going in at the half within a score as Miller kicked another penalty. With one minute on the clock, Kilkenny failed to claim the restart and Gerard's entered the Cats 22 instantly. Multiple phases later, they crossed the line in the corner. 17-6 half time, mountain to climb.
