Creggs Rugby 22, Galwegians RFC 22.
Creggs Rugby U13’s played their first game of the season against Galwegians on Saturday evening under lights in Creggs and got a very good 22-22 all draw.
Playing their first game on a full pitch, the Creggs forwards had the better of their opponents but the Galwegians backs played a very fast offloading game and a draw was a very fair result.
Training for the U13’s is in Creggs next Friday at 7pm. New players welcome.

Creggs Rugby 17, Corinthians RFC 5.
Creggs U14’s made it two wins from two games in Division 1 of the Under-14 Connacht League when they beat Corinthians RFC 17-5 last Saturday morning in Creggs.

Creggs took a lead through a try from Rory Callaghan early on but Corinthians equalised before half time leaving the sides level at half time 5-5. Creggs had much the better of the second half and Aaron Lyons was twice denied in the corner before tries from Jack Tucker and Naoise Coyle and a conversion from Mark Purcell stretched out the lead which Corinthians never looked liked closing.

Ballinrobe responded well and scored under the posts and took a 7-5 lead mid way through the half but Creggs responded well and Michael Kelly regained the lead for Creggs when the gained the ball on the 22″ after a lineout and sprinted to the line before the defense could realign and touched down, Tim Lambe converted to leave the half time score 12-7 to Creggs.

In the second half Creggs extended the lead after Tim Lambe converted a penalty after a sustained period of pressure for Creggs after 15 minutes stretching the lead to 15-7. Ballinrobe needed to score twice and they had a good period of play in the Creggs half but Creggs defended heroically to deny them any score and held out for a 15-7 win.

Athleague Camogie Club are delighted to announce our new
“A Hurl For Every Girl Campaign” Supported by Local Farmers & Industry.
Athleague Camogie Club has gone from strength to strength in the recent past with successes from underage to Senior County titles. With the support of our main sponsor Ward and Burke Construction coming on board in 2018, this has certainly supported and helped progress the promotion of our game in the Athleague Camogie catchment area.
Being part of any team, especially camogie and allied sports like GAA & Rugby, builds a good work ethic, collaboration, cooperation and learning to be part of a team. Team membership also builds resilience in players when learning to deal with success as well as failure. All these skills are crucial qualities for young people moving forward into the professional working world.
In the catchment area for Athleague Camogie Club there are 161 girls attending national school in the Creggs, Fuerty, Athleague and Ballymurray schools. We are lucky to have a great relationship with other clubs within our area, and as we don’t have our own pitch, these clubs kindly facilitate us with use of their grounds, namely Athleague Pitch, Tremane Pitch, Mulhern Park and Creggs RFC. Camogie is a minority sport in the parish. However, camogie is a noble Gaelic sport which enhances skills of resilience and courage. Those who participate as part of a team contribute positively in the workplace.
A new initiative has been launched by the club’s main sponsor Ward and Burke Construction to supply each of these primary school girls with a hurl and sliotar. Other local businesses have come on board to support this initiative including Aurivo, Kepak and Local Dairy Farmers. Senior club members will deliver the hurls and sliotars to the younger players during the next few weeks with further information on how to join our club.
For the past 4 years Michael Ward of Ward & Burke Construction has been the main sponsor for our club. His support and advice have allowed us to undertake initiatives like this “Hurl For Every Girl” campaign. A strong believer in gender equality, his company actively recruits, promotes, and encourages women to see past old stereotypes and realise their true potential in a predominantly male employment sector of construction. Michael, a former formidable sportsman himself truly believes in how invaluable playing a team sport is for young people, and for young girls in particular. Along with building character and resilience, it gives focus and direction at times in life when it is needed most, lifelong friendships are forged, and opportunities are opened up.

Aurivo are global leaders in food and dairy nutrition, bringing clean, green products from sustainable Irish farms to the world market. They offer fantastic career opportunities and are always looking for strong, enthusiastic, and ambitious people to join their teams. Having a sports background gives girls an edge on their competition in the career marketplace, as they understand teamwork, commitment, hard work and ambition
Kepak work with over 15,000 Quality Assured beef, lamb, and pork producers nationwide. We are extremely lucky to have a Kepak facility in our catchment area that is committed to supporting employment in Athleague and further afield. They also support local initiatives and sports teams in a loyal and practical way. Kepak too are always looking to recruit enthusiastic people to join their company, indeed many of their senior management have worked their way up the career ladder by training and working in all sectors of the business from operations and sales to procurement and product development.
These companies offer graduate programmes, and this is where Athleague Camogie Club comes in…… We want to encourage girls to look to these companies as career options, to promote rural Ireland and our community. We want them to see the bigger picture, these jobs are not just for males, young women’s potential within these organisations is limitless.
Our Local Dairy Farmers have joined us on this initiative to help promote rural jobs, to encourage girls to see farming as a real and viable option for them and to encourage growth and sustainability of the family farm. As we are a rural community it is vital for our survival and prosperity that young women can stay in their local area if they wish to, and that they are supported in their endeavours to promote women in farming as a career option. Keeping our community vibrant helps everyone not just our sports clubs.
