Next Sunday is a very important day for Castlebar RFC’s First team as they face OLBC in the Sportsground in the first round proper of the Connacht Junior Cup. A win here is the all important as defeat will spell the end of the season. If you can at all, please come out to Galway on Sunday and give your support. Should we win on Sunday, then the chance of a good run in the cup is there. Game kicks off at 3pm
The Seconds are having an excellent season and we hope that the same will happen again with the Ard Na Cregg that begins on Sunday in Cloondeash against Corinthians. After the unbeaten run in the Mayo seconds league and home advantage for the semi final, hopes are high of a great run in this competition. The game kicks off at 2.30 and it is hopeful that a good crown will come out and support the seconds.
The under 18 team were action over the weekend against Ballinrobe who came out on top 24-17. It was a very busy weekend as they came, they saw, they conquered with a very successful tour of Scotland in which they faced Dunfermline. Special congratulations must go to the coaches for a job well done.
The Castlebar under 8 and under 12 teams head to Ballinrobe for a blitz on Saturday. The bus leaves the courthouse at 10am. There is training for all other teams at the pitch at 11.
Due to a clash of dates, the Dress Dance has now been moved back a week to Friday 28th April, in the clubhouse.
