The second annual Keith O’Reilly Memorial Tag Rugby Tournament will be held in Corinthians Rugby Club this coming October 24th. Due to the incredible success of the 2009 event, organisers have decided to hold a second competition with all proceeds going to a number of local and national charities.

Matches will be played in a 6 aside format (3 Guys & 3 Girls) with a maximum of 4 substitutes, making a 10 person limit per team. To enter a team please contact Cathal (087-9450593) or Darren (085-7536266). There will be a €10 entry fee for each player, with a team of 10 paying a total of €100.

Once the rugby is over there will be a fancy dress party in the clubhouse until the late hours of the morning, with prizes for the best dressed male and female. Live music will be provided by local band TRYST. For those not involved in the rugby there will be a €5 entry charge and all are welcome whether you will be involved in the tag rugby or not.

Keith O’Reilly passed away in a tragic accident in Chicago, Illinois in July 2009. Before his death Keith had played for Corinthians R.F.C. as well as playing rugby underage with both Connacht and St. Joseph’s College (The Bish). Throughout his career Keith won numerous awards, most notable, Corinthians Player of Year.
