As part of the city of Blackrock's twinning partnership with Vincennes, France, representatives from both the Blackrock Business Network and the French delegates, including the mayor and the President of the Vincennes Rugby Club, visited Stradbrook on Friday. Conor Cleary provided an in-depth tour of the grounds and facilities, along with a brief history of the club.
Thursday saw the official signing of the twinning agreement between the two cities take place in Dun Laoghaire, with a formal reception that followed. Rock's Honourary Secretary, Dave Brennan, and Rugby Manager, Clinton Arblaster, both attended the reception.
Blackrock College RFC were thrilled to welcome these guests to Stradbrook and we look forward to seeing the relationship between the two rugby clubs progress.
