THE highliy anticipated Ennis RFC Centenary book ‘A Century of Scrums’ will be officially launched this evening (November 24) at the Old Ground Hotel in Ennis at 7pm.

Edited by Gerry Collison, former editor with The Limerick Post, The Clare People and The Clare Champion, it was compiled by the club’s Centenary History Committee headed up by Gerry Buggy.

The book maps out 100 years of Ennis Rugby Club and includes interviews with stars of today such as Tony Butler and Ethan Coughlan, while stories about club legends down through the years are featured including John Madigan, Anna Murphy, Declan Brandon.

Stories in the book recount historic moments in the club history such as ‘How DeValera may have inspired Ennis Rugby review’, ‘the Ennis man who became a Bohemian’, ‘the families who kept Ennis Rugby alive and ticking’.

Describing compiling the publication as a “mammoth task”, Gerry said the publication would not have been possible without the contributions of Collison, Tony Mulvey (who penned more than 20 articles) along with all the committee members.

Refreshments will be available on Friday evening at the Old Ground Hotel and all are welcome to attend. The “beautiful publication”, which was printed by Realprint in Ennis, will be available for sale in soft and hard back.
