Congratulations to Cloontuskert National School, who played in the Aviva National Blitz in the Aviva Stadium last week. They represented Creggs Rugby in the Connacht Aldi Tag Blitz, and qualified for the trip to Dublin last week, where they also met the Munster and Irish legend, Paul O’Connell.

The children from Cloontuskert National School, pictured in the Aviva Stadium last week for the Aldi National Tag Rugby Blitz. Also in the picture are Lorraine Collins, Padraic Connerton (School Principle), the legendary Paul O’Connell, and Pat O’Gorman (Team Coach).

Well done to all the children, their teachers and parents who enjoy a great day in Dublin at the home of Irish rugby.

The ethos of mini rugby is to foster and develop young players (boys & girls) of all ability in the game of rugby in a safe, non competitive, enjoyable environment through activities which ensure progressive skill development for all participants in line with the IRFU Long Term Player Development (LTPD) pathway, Child Welfare Policy and traditions of Rugby Union.

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.
