Dolphin rugby club was founded in 1902, by members of Dolphin Swimming Club seeking to find a wintertime activity. Their grounds are the famous home of The Munster Branch, Musgrave Park which has a capacity of 8,000. They play in Division 1 of the All-Ireland League and many of the present and former players have graced Munster, Ireland and The British & Irish Lions.
Speaking of the event, Kevin O Dwyer of Marymount Hospice said "We at Marymount are delighted with the fundraising efforts of Dolphin RFC through the Dolphin Challenge & Family Fun Day. Last year the Club raised vital money which enables us to continue to offer the very best of care to our patients and this year's event will be even bigger and better. I encourage all friends of Marymount Hospice to register on line and join us for that is sure to be a fantastic family event."
Speaking on behalf of the Dolphin Challenge committee Tony Taylor said;
"We are looking forward to this year's event which we hope will raise even more money for Marymount. It is open to all friends of Dolphin RFC and Marymount Hospice to participate and we would love to see all present, past rugby players joining in the fun for a great cause. All ages and abilities will be catered for so bring the kids and the grandparents for a fun filled day for a great cause which will kick off at 10.30am.
