Creggs Under-20’s went to the Sportsground in Galway last Saturday to take part in the first of four 10 a side Blitz competitions. Due to the awful weather , the competition was cut to a 7 a side competition with NUIG, Creggs RFC, Galwegians RFC and Corinthians RFC taking part.

Well done to the lads who took part as Creggs took the honours and won the first of the Blitzes and came away with the 10 points on offer for the winning side.

NEXT OUTING ON FRIDAY
The next Blitz will take place this coming Friday evening (16th.) at 6pm in Ballina, while the following Friday the 24th of August, the third Blitz will take place in Creggs.

Rugby is delighted to be opening up again soon and yesterday in Creggs RFC we had a unique presentation organised by Anthony Cahill from Cahill's Supervalu Castlerea.
Dr John Dillon from Castlerea proudly wore the green of Connacht back in the day and one of the his many achievements was to be part of a winning Connacht side against Ulster in Belfast in 1958.
When Connacht beat Ulster at Ravenhill in October 2018 there were two Roscommon players Denis Buckley and Jack Carty on the pitch that night, winning at Ravenhill for the first time since Dr John Dillon and his team mates some 60 years earlier thus joining a very elite group. Denis and Jack proudly presented Dr Dillon with a framed memento of his victory and a number 12 Connacht jersey as worn by Bundee Aki.
Owing to Covid 19 restrictions only a small number of people could attend including members of Dr Dillon's family. Creggs RFC was delighted to host the presentation and very appreciative of Anthony Cahill who organised the occasion and the beautiful framed memorabilia of the 1958 match.
