Connacht Rugby players and staff have been growing their support for men’s health awareness charity Movember this month.

Now in the last week of November, the moustaches at the Sportsground have reached their most impressive as the Connacht Rugby boys continue to raise vital funds and awareness.

As the month of the Mo’s loomed, senior players Willie Faloon and George Naoupu fronted the campaign and decided it should be mandatory for all players and management to participate.

Faloon said: “Movember is a worldwide movement and is so successful at raising awareness for men’s health. It requires dedication and willpower but is also a great way to bring the team together to share in the experience of growing a Mo. We’ve all had a good laugh this month and enjoyed seeing the different styles of moustaches the lads were growing…or trying to grow.”

“Hopefully our involvement will help raise the profile of this great cause amongst our supporters in Connacht and around the country.”

The Connacht Mo Bro’s have so far raised over €1, 200 for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. Supporters can join the ‘Mo Bro Team’ and donate at
