BUCCANEERS U-17’s are holding a TABLE QUIZ on this Friday, January 5th in The Bounty beginning at 8 p.m. Teams of four with an entry fee of €10 per adult and €5 for youths. There will be prizes on offer and complimentary finger food. Here’s hoping for good support for this quiz during the holiday season.




BUCCANEERS R.F.C. is hosting a BUSINESS NETWORKING LUNCH in Athlone’s Sheraton Hotel on Friday, February 2nd at 1 p.m.

Guest speakers will include Gary McGann (current chairman Paddy Power Betfair and also Aryzta who has held key roles at Aer Lingus, Smurfit Kappa, Ericssons and Gilbeys), Pat McDonagh (founder and CEO of Supermacs) and Kingsley Aikens (founder and CEO Diaspora Matters who was previously with Enterprise Ireland and CEO American Ireland Fund). That’s a very strong and interesting line-up on the panel. Bookings have proven very keen for this event, which is a key fund-raiser for the rugby club, and space is now at a premium. Contact our Administrator Geraldine at 0861732711 to book.  




Congratulations to Kolo Kiripati on being named “Westmeath Independent Sportstar for March”. Kolo skippered Buccaneers to a treble last season and he will be presented with his award at the forthcoming Awards Gala in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on Friday, January 26th. It is a sporting occasion that is well worth attending. 




Deepest sympathy is extended to the club’s Administrator Geraldine Kenny and extended family on the sudden death of her mother-in-law Anne Kenny. Heartfelt condolences too to Conor and Diarmuid Higgins and extended family on the untimely passing death of their mother Eileen.
