Carrick-on-Shannon news


It’s with deep shock and sadness that we learnt of the death of our treasurer Fergus Ahern.  Fergus was at home with his wife Marian at 11pm on Sunday night when he passed away suddenly.

We would like to wish his wife Marian, his two daughters and all his family and friends our deepest condolences and sympathy.

Connacht Rugby would like to extend it’s sympathies to the Ahern family and to Carrick-on-Shannon RFC for their loss.


Due to the sad news our opening Connacht J1B fixture away to Ballinasloe this weekend has been postponed till the weekend of October 16th/17th.  Please keep an eye on our website and our Facebook profile this week as training times may be affected due to funeral arrangements.

Training provisionally continues in Mohill at 7.15pm sharp on Wednesday and Friday at the Stade de Mohill.

Please contact club captain Shane McGuiness @ 086-2111419 and coach Ian Fowden @ 086-0888978 for more details.



Ladies training continues at the Stade De Mohill on Thursday @ 7.15pm.

Please contact Ladies Captain Aine Shanley @ 087-2544388 and coach Ian Fowden @ 086-0888978 for more details.



Next Saturday 25th September our U11’s have been selected to play at half time during the Magners League clash between Connacht and Ulster at the Sportsground in Galway.  This is a honour for the club and we are looking for all our U11’s to attend.

On the previous occasions the club has had this honour Connacht have won on both times so no doubt Eric Elwood and Co eagerly await our return.

Please contact Gary Molloy @ 0872381938 for any details.

Youth and Minis rugby training will continue at the Stade de Mohill on Saturday from 10.30 am.  Registration for the season will be 40 euro.  Bring a friend and bring a gumshield.  Old faces and new players are welcome.
