Carrick RFC are pleased to announce that  on Friday the 6th of February, Pat Lam and the Connacht Squad will be visiting Carrick RFC grounds at Keenaghan, Castlecara Road, Carrick on Shannon.  This will be the first time that the Connacht squad will visit and train in County Leitrim.  Word is, that after Pat Lam’s family visit in Carrick on Shannon last March, Pat couldn’t wait to return to Leitrim with his squad.  With Connacht Rugby at its most zenith point ever, the visit couldn’t come at a better time. 

When the team visit, the team will complete a work out and will then train with Carrick Youth and Mini players afterwards.  This is a great opportunity to see the Connacht squad perform their training sessions up close and also meet the players afterwards.  More details will follow next week.
