Seapoint Rugby Club welcomed over 2,300 young rugby players from 155 teams and from over 43 clubs to Kilbogget Park in Cabinteely last weekend for the 41st Seapoint Rugby Blitz. It’s the largest event of its kind in Ireland and Europe.

The event showcased the best of rucking, tackling, and passing, creating an electric atmosphere for players and spectators alike.

Leinster players Jamison Gibson-Park, Charlie Ngatai and Jordan Larmour joined Leo the Lion to show their support for the young players on the day.

The boys and girls from Seapoint U10s, U11s, and U12s were joined by players from all over the country, including clubs from Munster, Connacht, Ulster and their fellow Leinster clubs to participate in 604 matches across 31 pitches.

Over 150 volunteers scheduled the matches, coordinated things on the day, and arranged an array of family fun activities in the park, including a live DJ, BBQs, and family games. The event was a testament to the club and community spirit, which has kept it running for over 40 years.

Barry Chadwick, Seapoint RC President, said, “The Seapoint RC Blitz is a wonderful event that showcases the rugby skills of the thousands of boys and girls who take part each year. I am personally grateful to everyone who works so hard to put on this event year after year, and I’m particularly proud to be President on this our biggest blitz ever”.
