Local Rugby news 21/9/15

Carrick Mini rugby continued on Saturday 19/09/2015 at our new training grounds at Keenaghan, Carrick on Shannon at 10:30 am.  Numbers continue to grow and there was great turnout on a overcast morning.
New players, aged 7 or older, or 11 and younger on the 1/1/2016, are always welcome to join us and they can try it out for free, in September.  Rugby is a great way to keep fit over the winter months and a great way to make new friends and be part of a team of great rugby players.
Mini Rugby is not as tough as you might think and is a fun sport enjoyed by millions or people, young and old, around the world.  We really can’t emphasise it enough but new players at all age levels are always welcome.  Parents of new mini players can text, call or email Aidan at 086 3867960/[email protected] for more information.
