Club History
Club Founded: 1974

Creggs Rugby Football Club is based right alongside the County border between Galway and Roscommon, about eight miles from Roscommon Town.

Creggs RFC was formed in 1974 and success came early, winning the Connacht Junior Cup in 1978 and over the years the club won a number of Junior Cups and League titles. A couple of seasons in the All-Ireland League (Division 4) in the mid-1990’s also followed.

In recent years great work at Mini and Youth grades is proving a success with growing numbers and competitive in all age groups in the top level in Connacht.

For the 2018-19 season the club will field a First Senior Team in the top Connacht Junior 1A Division, and the Creggs Seconds will complete in Division 1C, both sides having been promoted.

We also plan to field a team in the Connacht Under-20 Series. In out Youths section, we will field at Under-18.5’s, Under-17’s, Under-16’s, Under-15’s, Under-14’s, & Under-13’s, as well Under-14 Girls.

In our Creggs MINI Rugby section, we will have teams at: Boys – Under-7, Under-8, Under-9, Under-10, Under-11, & Under-12; with Girls: Under-10 and Under-12. All Under-8 Girls train with the boys.

For the start of the 2018-19 season, Creggs hope to have the first full-size IRB approved 3G/4G rugby playing pitch in Connacht in place by September 2018, as well as two more new additional sand-based grass pitches available from spring 2019.

These will be in addition to ‘The Green’, which remains our main sand-based grass pitch.

Other ground works, changing facilities, local amenity provisions, etc. developments are also on-going at Creggs RFC and will continue in the season ahead.

There is always a great welcome in Creggs and the best of hospitality.

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.
