The Connacht Branch Rugby Dept administers much of its policy framework with the input and assistance from, and through, its committees.

They comprise volunteers and have for several years allowed the Branch’s administrative domestic wing to initiate and follow developments in all facets of provincial, club, schools, womens and youths rugby. 

They are: Competitions (responsible for open-grade club rugby, its draws and fixtures, and all player transfers and eligibility, among other things); Womens (which oversees the Connacht Womens representative set-up, interprovincial tournaments, and underage development); Schools (both senior and junior leagues and cup competitions, all development and emerging competitions, and feature events and finals); and Youths (underage leagues and cup competitions).
