Carlow Rugby Club will hold a special “REELING BACK THE RUGBYYEARS” reunion on the 10th May 2014…

Club members, past and present, are invited to come to the Club’s Oakpark home. There, they can renew and strengthen friendships made through playing and supporting Carlow Rugby down through the decades.

The trawl of members of this historic Club for the “REELING BACK THE RUGBY YEARS” party goes right back to the 1950’s and forward to the present. Carlow won the Towns Cup for the 4thtime in 1957.

Eight more victories pushed the Club into the all time lead in this competition. In the late 90’s the Club made history when it gained promotion and shot to Division 1 of the All Ireland League. More recently Carlow’s ladies have added their talents and trophies to the Club’s great rugby tradition.

Friendships at Carlow Rugby Club were and are not confined to action on the field. Pavilion and Executive members too are invited to May’s event.

The organising committee, headed by Tommy Doyle 087 2633447, wants everybody to spread the news of Carlow Rugby’s REELING BACK THE RUGBY YEARS well in advance of the event.

Please pass on the details, especially to former members who are now living overseas and also make plans to be there yourself.

Photographs, match reports, memorabilia from across the decades will be most welcome.
