Comórtas Rugbaí 2014


Beidh an chéad ‘Comórtas Rugbaí’ riamh ar siúl i gCorca Dhuibhne ar an deireadh seachtaine 11/12ú Aibreán 2014.

Comórtas rugbaí deichniúr an taobh atá i gceist, agus é oscailte do fhoirne fir agus mná. Tosnóidh an deireadh seachtaine le BBQ oíche Aoine, beidh na cluichí ar siúl ar feadh an lae ar an Satharn agus cuirfear clabhsúr leis na himeachtaí le oíche shóisialta agus bronnadh duaiseanna i mBaile na nGall ar oíche Shatharn.

The first ever Comórtas Rugbaí will take place on the Dingle Penninsula on the weekend of 11th and 12th of April 2014.

Comórtas Rugbaí is a great opportunity for teams to visit one of the world’s most beautiful places, enjoy the craic, hospitality and culture of the Dingle area while playing rugby in Europe’s most westerly rugby club at the foot of Mt Brandon looking out at the wild Atlantic Ocean and picking up the 'cúpla focal' as well.

The 10-a-side rugby competition will be open to adult male and female teams and will run throughout the day on Saturday. Friday night will see a welcome BBQ and drinks, with a closing ceremony taking place in Bally David on Saturday night.

The aim of the Comórtas is to promote the use of Irish through rugby. Teams will be required to enter with a team name as Gaeilge, the rules and refereeing will be applied as Gaeilge. Each team will also be provided with a list of rugby terms and useful phrases as Gaeilge to use over the weekend.

The cost of entry is €150 per team which includes the opening and closing parties. 'Comórtas Rugbaí' is organised by the local rugby club, 'Rugbaí Chorca Dhuibhne'.
