Rugby, Rucksacks, Rasher Rolls and Rollercoasters. Ashbourne RFC to host Rugby Festival and Campout.

Ashbourne RFC minis are looking forward to welcoming U9 and U12 squads from clubs across all four Irish provinces and further afield for the second Ashbourne RFC/Tayto Park Rugby Festival and Campout. The games will be played on the four fantastic pitches at Milltown House.
After the success of last year’s inaugural event many clubs who attended have registered teams to return for the fun event which will take place on Saturday the 24th and Sunday 25th of September,2016. In addition, the Ashbourne lads look forward to meeting some of the friends they made at recent Aviva minis festival.
Visiting teams will arrive from early afternoon on the Saturday and there will be plenty of rugby played into the early evening followed by the pitching of tents with the assistance of the local scout troops, dinner ,team building activities and music and fun until lights out.
After a good night’s rest, the players, coaches and parents will be able to enjoy a cooked breakfast before heading off to the nearby Tayto Park to enjoy the fantastic new Cu Chullain Roller coaster and the many other attractions of Tayto Park.
If your club would like to register some teams to participate at either or both age levels in what promises to be a great rugby weekend further event details, briefing and costs are available on the Ashbourne RFC Facebook page and at or simply email to request.
It is a great way for players to get back together with their teammates after the summer break, in addition the lads create friendships and rivalries with other clubs that they will enjoy throughout their rugby career.
What better way to kick off an enjoyable 2016/17 season.
Ashbourne RFC looks forward to welcoming you.
