Munster Rugby has nominated the RaboDirect PRO12 clash with Ulster on Saturday, December 29th as their official “Charity Match”. To support this initiative supporters are asked to purchase a match programme for €5 on the night and Munster Rugby will donate €1 for each programme sold to its three nominated charities along with a fixed donation to Adapt Domesic Abuse Services, Clare Crusaders and Jigsaw Kerry. At the match an exclusive signed “Charity Match Munster Jersey” will be presented to representatives of all three charities. Tickets are priced as follows: Terrace €20, Cat A €40, Cat B €30, Family €40. Ulster are the runaway leaders of the RaboDirect PRO12 and the game will kick off on Saturday at 5.30pm. Last weekend Munster battled their way toward a gritty 16-12 win over Connacht at the Sportsground.


Although neither decider features a team from north Tipperary this weekend’s county under-21A and B hurling finals will catch the eye of GAA enthusiasts. On Saturday in the Ragg at 12 noon the under-21B final features Upperchurch-Drombane and Golden-Kilfeacle. Upperchurch-Drombane beat north champions Kildangan last weekend and will be favoured to win this one while on Sunday Clonoulty-Rossmore will have it all to do to beat Thurles Sarsfields in the under-21A decider. The A final takes place in Boherlahan (1.30pm) and with Clonoulty-Rossmore chasing a first-ever under-21A title a large crowd is expected to attend.
