Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Pate’s Grammar School RFC U13 & U14 Rugby Tour to Cork

Pate’s Grammar School RFC U13 & U14 enjoyed a highly successful rugby tour to Cork in Ireland during the October half term and Burleigh Travel would like to congratulate them on remaining unbeaten on their tour playing some fantastic rugby in what were some difficult conditions.

On Wednesday 27th October Pate’s were invited to Kinsale RFC where they were able to enjoy a training session in the morning to ensure their legs were stretched out following the coach journey the day previously. This was a fantastic way for the boys to start their rugby tour enabling some fine tuning of moves in anticipation of the games in the afternoon. In wet and windy conditions both sides had exciting matches at Kinsale Rugby Club with the wind proving a key factor.Pates Grammar School Cork 2010

The U13 side had the wind at their backs in the first half and took advantage building up a healthy advantage by half time which proved just enough despite a fierce comeback from the hosts with Pate’s running out winners 36-20. The U14 side had a similar game building up a significant lead before having to withstand a fightback eventually running out winners 36-10.

On Thursday the boys enjoyed trips to the Jameson Experience and also to Blarney Castle where they kissed the infamous Blarney Stone hoping it would bring them good luck for their evening games against Kanturk Rugby Club. This clearly proved to be the case as both teams ran out fairly comfortable winners after producing wonderful attacking displays of rugby however Kanturk should be congratulated for their never say die attitude and competitive spirit!

All the boys should be congratulated on their highly successful rugby tour to Cork and received praise from everyone especially the lead coach from Kinsale Rugby Club who advised “they had a fantastic time with Pate’s, the boys were impeccable and the teachers should be very proud of them!”
