Claremorris RFC recently hosted the fourth mini girls rugby blitz and featured teams from Westport, Claremorris, Galwegians and Ballina.

Wendy Hickey, Womens Community Rugby Officer, was delighted to see so many taking part.


“The growth of the game at mini level for girls has been immense this year moreso than other years. I really hope the groundwork done elsewhere this winter will yield an even greater response to these blitzes next time around. “The key is getting clubs to start their own mini girls sections.” She commended Kevin O’Malley and the Claremorris Club for hosting the blitz and making the day extra special for all involved.
