Upcoming Events for County Carlow Rugby Club

County Carlow Football Club’s new all inclusive special needs tag rugby team. We are proudly called ‘County Carlow Bees’. We cater for children from four years of age right up to adulthood. As the only all inclusive team in Carlow we regularly receive positive feedback from both participants and their parents about the benefits of being part of a team and the sense of community spirit and belonging that comes with having a club to call their own.
On July 7th we are hosting a unique all inclusive tag ruby blitz. This exciting day will see up too fourteen teams from all over Leinster participate in this first for County Carlow. We are expecting approximately 200- 250 people in attendance to include participants, their coaches and family and friends. It will be a
morning of fun and games.

Don’t forget ‘Give it a Try’ starts next week, 13th May 7-8pm in Carlow Rugby Club. It runs for 8 weeks and is aimed to introduce girls aged 10-14yrs to rugby in a fun environment. All coaches are fully qualified. It costs €10 for the 8 weeks, all girls will receive a T-shirt and there will be a visit from a Leinster/ Irish Women’s player. For more information just pm our page and we can answer your questions!
