SENIOR RUGBY 

Creggs Firsts to play Dunmore RFC this weekend

Creggs First team’s Connacht League game away v Ballinrobe, last Sunday fell victim to the weather. This Sunday, the Firsts are away to local rivals Dunmore RFC in the Connacht League at 2.30 on Sunday. While Creggs currently sit at the top of the table, with three away games and one home fixture still to be played, there will be no complacency.

 Training continues on Tuesday and Friday nights.

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 www.psaacademies.com/thebigrugbyrun for information.
