The return of rugby is now in sight, however COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines will place even more pressure on our limited facilities.

Conscious of this, the club committee are backing a creative solution to ease the load, namely the development and enhancement of our training facilities.

This will include the development of one end of our main pitch together with improving the top pitch sand area which will have a big impact on easing congestion amongst our different squads.

Naturally this comes at a cost, so we have set a fund-raising target of €15K to complete this work pre-season. We have set up a ring-fenced fund exclusively for this development.

We would appeal to all our members to please contribute whatever you can, to help provide this vital resource to our club players as they make their long-awaited return to training.

Our partners Clubforce have set up a Donations page to make this as simple as possible. Please click here for more info.
