On Friday 3rd August a fundraising night was held at the club to help support the players. The night was a massive sucess raising well in excess of €2000. Well done and thank you to Andrea Jones for organising the night and to all who helped out contributing their time, donate spot prizes and sponsorship, bake beautiful cakes and bringing wonderful salads. It was a great fun night and was all very much appreciated.

Niamh Briggs, who was captain of the Irish Womens Rugby team when they won the 2015 Six Nations title, was also in attendance to present her aunt Patty Briggs with her first cap for Ireland.
