Killorglin Rugby Club’s AGM was due to take place on Friday last 5th June but, as a mark of respect to the late Rhetta McSwiney & Ann O’Shea, it was postponed. The new date for the AGM will be announced in the coming weeks.
Our annual Summer Tag Rugby has begun. It takes place every Tuesday evening at 7:30 in the Dragon’s Den All weather pitch. Tag Rugby is non-contact, and is open to both men and women to play for only €3 per night.
The Rugby Club Underage Awards took place recently in the Intermediate School Killorglin. In his opening address, club President Tom Curtayne spoke of the trojan work being done at underage level in the club, but pointed out that there is more help needed in Youth Administration. He also thanked the Intermediate School for the use of their facilities and the Community College for the use of their grounds where the club play all home games.
The Club then presented awards to the Player of the Year (PoY) & Most Improved Player (MIP) in each age grade. The U10 awards went to Ryan McCormack (MIP) & Luke O’Sullivan Griffin (PoY).

The Intermediate School Head Coach Colm Conway also presented similar awards to his senior team with accolades going to Tadhg Prenderville (MIP) & Fionan Crowley (PoY). Along with these awards there was also a medal presentation made to the Intermediate School’s Senior Team who won the West Munster Cup, and to the Club’s U14s who won the Plate competition in the Tralee International Festival of Rugby. Finally a presentation was made to Patrick Kilkenny & Donagh McGillicuddy, two of the Club’s Under 16 team who have made it into the Munster Youth squad for next Season. Best of luck to the two Glencar natives & Congratulations to all our winners. We hope to see them all when we start back to training in early September!
