Charities to benefit from Munster/Leinster clash


Munster Rugby has confirmed that a portion of the proceeds from each match programme sold at Munster’s sold-out Guinness PRO14 clash against Leinster this Saturday (December 29th) will be donated to two worthy causes.

In keeping with previous years, the Round 12 Guinness PRO14 Interprovincial fixture has been nominated as Munster’s official “Charity Match”.

During half-time, representatives from both charities will each be presented with a signed Munster jersey on pitch.

 Match programmes will be on sale at the game for €5, with €1 from each match programme sold donated to the respective charities.

Over the 2018/19 season Munster Rugby is working closely with each charity, actively supporting them in helping raise awareness and funds for much-needed resources that are widely availed of across the province and Ireland.

Claire Cooke, Munster Rugby CSR Project Manager commented “The Munster v Leinster game in Thomond Park over the Christmas period is always a great occasion and we are delighted to again nominate it as our official Charity Match.

 As with every season our objective is to increase awareness and raise funds for our nominated charities who do such wonderful work in Munster and Ireland.

We hope our supporters will get behind our match programme initiative in support of two worthy causes – Cliona’s Foundation and Irish Cancer Society,” Ms Cooke added.

The charities:

Cliona’s Foundation – 
The mission for Cliona’s Foundation is to provide financial assistance for all families struggling to care for children with a life-limiting condition. Based in Limerick, the charity has provided assistance to families all across the country.

Irish Cancer Society -
The Irish Cancer Society, with services in place across the province, has grown into the national charity for cancer care, the leading provider of all information relating to cancer prevention, detection, treatment and support.
