Background to the Gerry Olin Trophy
Gerry Olin, the manager of the Terenure RFC U20s sadly passed away earlier this year. Gerry was involved with U20s rugby in Terenure RFC for many years and was a regular visitor to Old Wesley with Terenure’s U20s and in a social capacity.
To remember Gerry and to acknowledge the link between our two clubs Terenure RFC and Gerry’s family have put forward a trophy to be contested for each year between our U20s teams. The inaugural match will take place in Lakelands at 7 pm on Friday the 30th of December. This would be an informal match and would be open to U20s players from the last few seasons. There will be a presentation, food and drinks after the match. See further details below:
