Castlebar RFC first team’s proposed game against Garryowen did not go ahead on Sunday last due to Garryowen’s continued participation in their cup competition. However, all guns are now blazing ahead of their first league game of the season against Loughrea on Sunday next in Cloondeash. Castlebar have shown in the past that they are a team to watch out for and are ready for a good season. Loughrea are a good side and showed that they will not be a pushover by any means so support will be vital. Castlebar have one of the best home supports in the league and it is hoped that everyone can make it out to Cloondeash for this game. Kick off is at 3pm.
