Family Day / Registration

published:Oct  01

There was a wonderful turnout at Family Day which also incorporated Youths & Minis Registrations. Dubarry Park was a hive of activity with minis rugby on the main pitch, busy action on the bouncing castles, face painting and seeming like tons of hot dogs being consumed by the hordes of young pirates! Noah Clarke, unfortunately, sustained an injury at the event and he is wished a full and speedy recovery.

Buccs Lions Rugby tour 2013

published:Jun  20

The Buccs Lions Tour of Australia will commence on approx. June 20th 2013, with the first Test on 22nd of June in Brisbane followed by a three day sailing trip around the Whitsunday tropical Island. This will be followed by scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, fly to Melbourne for the 2nd Test on the 29th of June. We then plan to ski in the Snowy mountains, before the 3rd Test in Sydney on July 6th and fly home asap (approx. 17 days in total) after that. If there are sufficient numbers we hope to play a match in Brisbane, a rough estimate of the cost would be €2,500 (excluding beer money) this is based on current prices and our previous experience on other tours. If you are interested in a good time then this is as good as it gets (ask anyone that has been on previous tours if you are in any doubt) Previous experience in having a good time is a mandatory requirement, (time wasters need not apply). A deposit of €500 by July 16th.
