[St. Patrick’s Day Parade Video]

St. Patrick’s Day’s event turned out to be a great opportunity for SIRC. The children, parents, coaches and volunteers wore club uniforms, passed along the ball with the roadside audience, and enjoyed the parade in Omotesando while scrummaging (literally!). I would like to thank Irish Network Japan for giving such an opportunity, and the Rugby World Cup 2019 Organizing Committee for their joint participation.    <Coach / Hiroki Shimada>
