Malcolm Salmon, one of our rising stars from the Ottawa Irish Junior Boys Rugby Program, has been named to the Canada U18 squad and will be traveling to compete in Romania at the end of October. To help him along his journey, a fundraising event at Boston Pizza is being hosted Tuesday Oct 29th to help raise some funds towards his tour. Details:

Boston Pizza in Rockland (3002 Richelieu St) on Tuesday October 29 from 5:00-8:00. Malcolm will receive 10% off all food sales.

We encourage all those who are able to attend, to take the night off and enjoy a dinner out with the family or friends at Boston Pizza. Being Irish is all about showing support for our young and aspiring rugby players!
