Enjoy the summer holidays and stay safe.

Wilson's Past Pupils win the Winkworth Cup in Rugby.

Congratulations to the Wilson's Hospital Past Pupils rugby team which won the annual Winkworth Cup competition on Saturday 27th August 2011.

This game is played on the last Saturday in August every year against Mullingar Rugby Club. This is only the second time in the nine years of the competition that the Past Pupils' team has won. Leinster coach Joe Schmidt presented the trophy to Ivan Poole. It was lovely to have Brian and Mrs Winkworth present for the game. It was a fun afternoon at the club with past and present pupils catching up with each other in the brilliant sunshine.
