Photos 1950 Christian Brothers School Under 14 Team / Athy Rugby Team 1938

This week and next week my pen rests and instead I bring you some photographs from the past.  The victorious Christian Brothers Under 14 school team of 1950 contrasts socially and age wise with the Athy rugby team of 12 years previously.  The rugby team, captained by Dr. Joe O’Neill, lost the 1948 Provincial Towns Cup Final to Dundalk.  The only surviving members of that team are Dr. O’Neill, Frank Anderson, Kevin Maher and Tony Osborne.
