Great celebrations after Grand Slam and Creggs Connacht win

Last Saturday a capacity attendance watched Ireland deliver the Grand Slam and pick up the 6-Nations Championship and Triple Crown trophies in London. A rare occasion that most of us have gratefully see happen twice in the past decade.
Throw in the great additional celebrations of Creggs First team winning the Connacht Junior League and returning to the top level rugby again, and you get a really rare occasion to celebrate in with another capacity crown in Roscommon Town. And that’s what happened – an amazing afternoon drifted in to a great evening and night.
A special thanks to the O’Gara family who hosted the wider Creggs Rugby family in their new bar (Nancy’s). And in addition to congratulating Ireland, a special congrats to all involved in Creggs winning the Connacht League with a game in hand.
Finally, well done to Sean Brandon, who was one of three that correctly predicted the Ireland v England score at the event on St. Patrick’s Day and his name was the lucky one of the three drawn from the hat – his prize was an Ireland rugby jersey.

Curley Cup Final
Creggs First Team will also play Corinthians RFC on Good Friday, the 30th. March in the Curly Cup Final. The game will be played in Ballyhaunis – KO 7.30pm.

Well done to Creggs RFC'S U18's representatives v Munster in UL today, Ciaran Purcell, Lee Kilcoyne and Eoin Kelly.

Great to see the lads playing today, not having played any game since March 2019 due to the lockdown restrictions.

Creggs RFC were honoured today with a visit from Ireland and Lions star Gordon Darcy. Beautiful weather and a large socially distanced crowd welcomed Gordon and his brother Ian to Creggs. He is on day two of a four day 850km charity cycle raising funds for Barretstown.
Gordon now a successful children's book author had many young fans waiting for him with copies of his books for signing. Gordon Darcy complimented Creggs RFC on the fabulous new development (dressing rooms and gym) which is under construction and the 4g pitch which is the only one of its kind in Connacht.
He also commended the policy which sees the facility used by other local sports clubs.
We wish Gordon well as he endeavors to complete his journey back to Dublin at the weekend.
A legend in every sense of the word.
