Creggs senior teams are back in training for the last month, with good numbers.
Pre-Season Training each Tuesday at 8pm and Saturday at 6pm.

The First team open their competitive season with a tough home game v newly promoted to J1, Tuam RFC in the Cawley Cup, which we won last year for the first time. This game is the weekend of September 1st. – just over two weeks time, and is a Quarter-Final.

The Development team start their competitive season a week later with a home game v Carrick in the Curley Cup. This will also be a Quarter-Final.

New and returning players always welcome in Creggs and there are lots of enquiries – many of those from players that haven’t played rugby before.

Creggs go top in Connacht Under-20’s Competition

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.

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.
