A bit of Clongowes history

rugby_01.jpgOld Clongownians and brothers Rob and David Kearney have made a little bit of Clongowes rugby history. A recent match against Gwent Dragons was the first time two brothers from the College have played for the province in the Magners League. Elder brother Rob is already a permanent fixture with Leinster and Ireland and all set to become a Lion when he goes on tour to South Africa. Younger brother David (pictured here) entered the Leinster Academy and showed great potential. He was soon on the Ireland under 20’s team and has more recently played for Leinster. There is also a strong possibility that both brothers will represent Ireland at full international level. That will undoubtedly be another first for Clongowes and a little bit of Jesuit history as well.
