A group of 15 Year 10 rugby players enjoyed a day to Belfast as part of their involvement in this year’s Football Makes Our Shared History (FMOSH) project. The first part of the day was spent at the Ulster Museum where the squad of U14 boys and girls took part in a workshop with fellow pupils from Oakgrove Integrated College, Londonderry exploring the idea of sport as a vehicle for positive community relations and peace building. They were then treated to a guided behind the scenes tour of Kingspan Stadium and even managed to squeeze in a visit to the Ulster Shop for a couple of souvenirs.
As part of the project the group are currently involved in putting together a short film about the history of ERGS rugby club and the game of rugbys contribution to bringing communities together; so keep an eye out for the film to be published on the App in the next couple of weeks.
A massive thank you to Tim from FMOSH, Finola and Rachel from the Ulster Museum and Brian from Ulster Rugby, Kingspan for a great day out.
