Crowning glory… King Cup victory gives Midleton CBS their first rugby trophy


The King Cup is coming back to Midleton but to another school.

Having previously been paired off against difficult opponents such as Pobal Scoil Na Trionoide, St Joseph’s CBS Nenagh, Tralee CBS and Newtown School, Midleton CBS students have beaten the odds to bring home the trophy. 

On Thursday the 11th of April, Midleton CBS participated in the final of the School’s Under 16 King Cup against Rice College Ennis. This was no easy feat as the Midleton school boys had been defeated at club level by the same group just three weeks prior.

The team were well prepared and focused going into the game and within the first five minutes dived over the left hand corner to put the first five points on the board.
