The IRFU organised a World Cup Festival for U12 girls in Maynooth at the weekend for teams from each of the four provinces. Each team representing a country participating in the Womens Rugby World Cup later this year.

Ellen Hamilton in year 8 plays for Donaghadee RFC, who were selected to represent the New Zealand All Blacks - a role they fulfilled admirably.

The team won all their matches and were described by Ulster Rugby Officials as "the best team there by far"!
