New Senior Mens Head Coach - Tony O'Brien

20 Jun 2018

Athy RFC are delighted to announce that Tony O'Brien joins the club as our new Senior Mens Head Coach for the new season. Tony is a vastly experienced coach...

Athy RFC was the venue once again for the 6th Annual Rugby Camp-Out, which saw 65 teams of both Boys and Girls from all 4 provinces participating in this unique event. Proceedings commenced with blitzes at U10, U11 and U12 grades with neutral referees for all matches and the standard of rugby displayed at all grades shows that the future of Irish Rugby is very bright.                                        
 
After the rugby, the teams were treated to a hot meal before an evening of team-building activities which included an obstacle course, tug-o-war and team sack races. The passing showers certainly couldn't dampen the spirits of the kids who put on a brilliant display of dancing during the outdoor disco also. The attendees then settled in to their camp-sites for the night before departing back to their home clubs after a hot breakfast on Sunday morning.                                                        
 
The feedback for this unique event has again been amazing and lots of photos are being uploaded to the Athy Rugby Camp-Out Facebook page. This event was again made possible by an army of almost 150 volunteers from all sections of the Athy RFC club and the work has already begun on the 2019 event.
