Its three out of three for the firsts after last Sunday when they overcame a tough Ballinrobe side 10-3 thanks to a Paul Coady try, conversion and penalty. This was an important win and puts Castlebar in a strong position at this early stage of the league. Next up is NUIG in Dangan. A win here is vital but the Students will be no pushovers. Game kicks off at 3pm and all support will be vital.

The Seconds started their season on Sunday last against Westport and despite some great rugby had to give second best this time to a good Westport team. Castlebar’s try came from Eamon Cafferkey but one of the positives was the young talent that is coming through the ranks. This could be a great season for the lads so please come out and support.
