Markethill Primary School pupils have secured a rugby treat thanks to success in the Dale Farm Building Heroes competition.

Rugby-loving students won a training session with Ulster Rugby’s Rob Herring, Eric O’Sullivan and Johnny McPhillips.

Finlay Starrett from P7 submitted the successful entry detailing why his class deserved the visit.

The winning entry also secured Starrett’s class a kit of personalised Dale Farm rugby jerseys and ice cream.
