Belvedere put rugby collection on show

January 8, 2008 in General, News

Belvedere’s unique collection of rugby books and programmes, the Ray Carroll Rugby Collection, has been catalogued and housed in the Jesuit Library. Recent visitors – Edmund Van Esbeck (Irish Times), Seán Diffley (Irish Independent) and Willow Murray (Archivist, IRFU) – were very impressed. It will be officially launched by Ollie Campbell on Thursday 6 March at 8.30pm, two days before the Ireland-Wales match. At the launch, the €4000 profits from Belvedere’s Rugby Heroes, edited by Oliver Murphy, will be donated to Ollie Campbell’s charity for those who have suffered serious rugby injuries.
