Support Creggs Rugby’s ‘For the Love of the Club’ fundraising Walk/Run


Connacht Rugby and Bank of Ireland are supporting Creggs Rugby Club with their ‘For The Love of the Club’ fundraising initiative this coming St Patrick’s Day, March 17th, which will last for one week until March 24th. Will you please join us?

For the Love of the Club is a virtual 5K or 10K fundraising walk or run where participants can register to:

The entry fee is €10 will go to Creggs RFC, once it is the chosen Club of the participants.

We welcome all to participate, from keen runners to casual walkers. It’s all about getting reconnected and active again and whether you’re at home in Roscommon, Castlerea, Strokestown, Lanesborough, Lecarrow, Ballygar, Newbridge, Glenamaddy, Williamstown or in your home from home in Melbourne, Boston, Toronto or anywhere in the World, you can be part of your club, Creggs RFC in these challenging times. You may have a niece or nephew, a grandchild, a neighbour, a work colleague, or a casual acquaintance involved with the Club. Why not join this great fundraising initiative, and walk or run 5/10 km to support them.

This fundraiser will provide a much needed financial boost to Creggs Rugby Club in the current climate of restrictions. It will help greatly to maintain the facilities – both those in use such as the Community Walkway and the training and playing pitches etc. for when rugby returns for all our boys and girls.

The pandemic period has made it increasingly difficult for the Club to access most funding streams and through this initiative you can contribute to the Club, while getting some healthy exercise in the process.

In addition to your support, Bank of Ireland, Connacht Rugby’s community partner, will provide €5,000 worth of Rhino Rugby equipment to the club that goes the extra mile. Will you help us

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 for information.
