Longford RFC’s Shane Mallon selected for Ireland 7s Squad

Congratulations to Longford RFC’s Shane Mallon who has been selected in the Ireland Rugby 7s Development Squad, who will play in the Dubai Invitational Tournament alongside the famous Dubai 7s this weekend.  The squad arrived in Dubai on Tuesday ahead of three days of action and will be coached by former Ireland International Kevin Maggs.  Shane who hails from Clooncareen, Bornacoola, came through the Longford RFC Mini/Youth set up before spending Senior Cycle with Cistercian College Roscrea and is now in UCD.  Shane is a great club man and before his call up was busy mentoring the Longford U15 Squad in the Midlands Selection Blitz last weekend.  All at Longford RFC wish Shane the best of luck in the tournament and know that he will be a hit on the 7’s circuit.
