Munster Women’s Committee Seek Volunteers

The Munster Women’s Committee is looking to recruit volunteers to help create a vibrant rugby community across the province for both the women’s and girls’ games.

It doesn’t matter if you are already involved with a club or not! You may have a passion for the game and a skill set that would make a huge difference to the women and girls of the province.

There are a number of volunteer positions that the Women’s Committee are seeking assistance with ranging from committee roles to administrative and PRO positions.

This is an exciting time to be involved in the women’s and girls’ game with Ireland hosting the Women’s Rugby World Cup this year.

If you are interested being involved and wish to discuss further please contact Women’s Community Rugby Officer Amanda Greensmith – via email at amandagreensmith@munsterrugby.ie or by mobile 086-0218320 – for further details.
