Big away win for Cregg’s Under-16’s in Galway


Connacht Under-16 Cup:

NUIG 17, Creggs RFC 77.

Played in beautiful conditions on a great surface in the University grounds at Dangan in Galway last Saturday, Creggs Under-16’s ran out 77 points to 17 winners over NUIG in the Connacht Under-16 Cup.

Creggs started the game well and got the first try through Aaron Lyons which Mark Purcell converted but within 5 minutes found themselves 10-7 down but after that Creggs took complete control and had further tries through Mark Purcell, Rory Callaghan, Luke Divilly, Ciaran Corcoran (3), David Gaquin (2), Aaron Lyons, Lorcan Maher and Darren Gately while NUIG managed to cross for another try in the second half.
Also excellent for Creggs on the day were Adam Donnelly, Jack Tucker and Cian Glennon. Creggs now have a tough Connacht Cup Quarter-Final draw, when they travel to play Cup favourites Galwegians in two weeks time.
Training continues on Thursdays at 7pm in Astro Turf in Roscommon. New players always welcome.

Hi Folks,
Creggs Rugby Club are looking to take part in this year’s Big Rugby Run on May 22nd. The event format will see each registered team committing to running the 42-kilometer distance of a full marathon in your club colours – all while carrying a rugby ball! This distance will be completed as a relay, by teams of up to 21 members aged 10 and upwards. This means a Minimum of 2km per runner/walker. This year funds raised are going toward initiatives run by Tackle Your Feelings, a mental health and well-being programme ran by the Rugby Player Ireland foundation.
If interested, please let us know and once we have numbers competing, we will create a text group where all information will be put up for the next steps to follow. For any questions before signing up contact Kenneth Loughrey on 0857664010 or go to for information.
