In the interview, Shane talks about the Clontarf coaches approach in relation to teaching young kids how to "tackle effectively and how to be tackled and react in a certain situation" and how coaches doing SAFE Rugby courses know how to respond to injuries on the pitch.

Despite an 18 point lead at half-time, Clontarf had to battle it out against a determined Cork Con in the second-half, but ultimately the Bulls took home the silverware with the final score; 28-25.…

Ireland have secured themselves a quarter final spot in the 2015 Rugby World Cup!
Joe Schmidt's team was pushed to their limits throughout the entire 80 minutes, yet despite Captain Paul O' Connell and Johnny Sexton both suffering injuries, the lads in green managed to beat the French 24-9!!
Clontarf's own Cian Healy, prop on the international team, has said the fact that O' Connell is injured means the team will only fight for World Cup Glory with even more determination in his honour.
A huge congratulations from Clontarf to Healy and the boys! Now let's beat Argentina…
