Congrats also to Creggs Under-18 girls player Hannah Coen who has been picked at number 8 for their opening iInter-Pro game against Leinster next Saturday in Barnhall RFC.

Creggs girls rugby was only relaunched last season and it is an amazing achievement for Hannah, who only took up the game last year playing with Creggs RFC and the Convent of Mercy team in Roscommon.

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.
