Youngster donates First Communion cash to injured Irish rugby players

This is awesome.

WHAT DID YOU do with your First Communion money?

Rather than spend it all on sweets and Premier League stickers like we did, one rugby-loving youngster has donated some of their money to help support Ireland’s injured rugby players.

The Irish Rugby Union Players’ Association (IRUPA) received a donation in the post this morning, accompanied by this letter from a little Leinster fan:

“To IRUPA, I made my communion and would like to give you some of my money.

“I love watching rugby and the Leinster team are my favourite. I don’t like to see injuries but I know it happens so I hope my communion money helps some players…”

What a little legend.
