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.

All 3 teams in action this weekend.
First up was U18s who played A training game Friday with Corrib. A very worthwhile exercise and many thanks to our hosts for making it such an enjoyable evening.
Saturday evening brought Creggs Rfc to Tuam where firstly u14s locked horns. Trys from Ailbhe Gannon,Juno Hayes,Doireann Clancy and Ceoladh Lydon were the topping on a fine team performance for this continually improving group. Strong performances too from Kyri Ruane,Louise Seoige,Sarah Smith and Heidi Watson.
Next up was the U16s. This was a cracker of a game where despite the best efforts of captain Hannah Clarke to drag her side into the game Creggs proved too strong on the day. Experienced players Beibhinn Gleeson,Keanah Irons and Charlotte O Grady continually offered themselves in both attack and defence but the powerful relentless ball carrying Creggs girls were deserving victors.

A great evenings Rugby tonight when Creggs Girls U14 and U16 travelled to play Tuam/Oughterard in Tuam in their first games of the season.

The U14's who had a lot of players playing their first ever game went down to a strong Tuam/Oughterard team but put in a great performance and then the U16"s Girls came out on top in a tough encounter against the same opposition.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
