CONNACHT v WASPS in Dubarry Park

published:Jun  17   2018

Connacht is hosting a highly attractive pre-season friendly when they take on top English Premiership club Wasps at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Saturday, August 18th. Further details including information re kick-off time, tickets and pre-match function will be available shortly.




The annual Tag Rugby Summer League continues weekly on Thursdays all the way to the finals night which will take place on Friday, July 27th. The participants have been blessed with ideal weather to date, although that can be taxing on the players. However, The Bounty’s beer and a burger hot offer may be a cure for the sun and heat! The action gets under way at 7 p.m. nightly.




Entries are still being taken for Buccaneers Annual Golf Classic which takes place at Glasson Golf Club on Wednesday, July 25th. The afternoon slots are more or less full at this stage while the earlier you book the better tee-off slot available! To enter, phone Geraldine at 0861732711.




Connacht Rugby Summer Camp takes place at Dubarry Park from Monday, August 13th to Friday 17th from 9.15 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. daily  Log on to COMMUNITY.CONNACHTRUGBY.IE or phone 091561568 to book.




Buccaneers “7’s in the City” is not taking place this summer but Connemara RFC is hosting their annual Sevens event on the weekend of July Friday 6th to Sunday 8th at The Monastery Field in Clifden. Entry fee is €120 per team and Rory at 0872203178 will welcome entries or enquiries.




“Best of luck” to Robbie Henshaw and the Ireland team as they square up to Australia in the decisive third test in Sydney on Saturday next. Ireland were much improved in last week’s win in Melbourne and only an inability to finish up some highly promising attacks denied a merited clearer victory. I expect that will be rectified this weekend and you can watch the action unfold on the big screens at The Bounty from 11 a.m.
