Mens Seniors

Senior Rugby

Seniors rugby in Carlow has a proud and successful tradition. We have a professional and driven team organising and motivating all areas of rugby with the club. Trying to provide the best possible chance to both succeed on the field and enjoy the game off it.

Preseason training begins in August with the league season starting in September and continuing through into March. Training is on Tuesday and Friday night 7.30 to 9.00. We have several senior teams including the Ladies team which is a combination team between County Carlow Football Club and the Institute of Technology Carlow.

We are always looking to introduce new players into our rugby club environment, so if you are interested or know of someone who is, no better time to introduce yourself to Carlow Rugby.
