Garda Westmanstown Rugby Football Club held a club fun day to integrate all sections of the club on 21st October. The Rugby club which is open to all members of the public located between Lucan and Clonsilla has over 200 members and is continually growing. The club caters for all ages with boys and girls from age 6 up through the youths section to senior men’s and women’s teams. Along side this there is also a special needs tag rugby team, the Westmanstown Wasps which caters for all abilities. The Club day started off with the U12s playing St Brigids and the senior women’s team training. This was followed by the U16s taking on Skerries and the Wasps taking on the U11s in a challenge game which was both competitive and enjoyable. The men’s team took on Portarlington in their league campaign which they won comfortably with a score line of 57-14.
The club hosted the Six Nations Triple Crown Trophies for the day and these proved very popular with both home and visiting teams. Also attending the club were the Garda National Unit with the Garda Dog and Mounted unit.
The club would like to thank all their volunteers for their time on the day and look forward to welcoming new members in the future. The club is continually recruiting new players, coaches and volunteers to the club. Check out their FB page or contact Gardarfcsec@gmail.com.
