Yesterday in Dublin’s Marrowbone Lane, Garry Ringrose teamed up with some of Liberty Saints finest to demonstrate mutual support for the game, each other and to talk about the upcoming Rugby Generation X conference.
Liberty Saints RFC has a core ethos: Train For Life. Rugby Generation X supports this ethos and in so doing will donate proceeds from its upcoming Aviva Stadium Conference, taking place on 27th August 2016, to Liberty Saints RFC.
Mr. Tom Magee of Liberty Saints RFC explains: “South Inner City Dublin is a wonderful place of character and history but it is not without its problems. Life for a young person in our community can be extremely challenging, leaving many with little capacity to dream of a life full of opportunities. Many of our young players live amid the chaos of drugs and alcohol abuse, open drug dealing, fear, intimidation and severe anti-social behavior. Liberty Saints RFC was established as a layer of support and to act as a stabilising structure. We are much more than just a rugby club. Through encouragement, challenge, advice and on-going care, we cater for a vital need in our community”.
Mr. Tom Magee, concludes: “We are very excited that Rugby Generation X will donate proceeds from its upcoming conference, thereby enabling us to get closer to achieving the Liberty Saints RFC objective of providing its own transportation, to ensure the future of rugby in our City”.
The Rugby Generation X conference takes place in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday August 27th 2016. Rugby Generation X will be chaired by Craig Doyle of BT Sports and addressed by Ireland Head Coach, Joe Schmidt.
