Ireland’s only official IRFU Tag Rugby is now taking registrations with leagues already filling up. Players from all over Ireland will be signing-up to ensure their places and avoid missing out as particular venues sell out very quickly…

The growth of IRFU Tag has been phenomenal and this year’s programme expects to see over 1,000 teams and 12,000 participants at quality venues all based in rugby clubs across Ireland. With summer leagues running from May to August, teams register early every year to avoid missing out on a place in venues which can fill up by the end of the month.

In addition, this year will see IRFU Tag Beach festivals adding to the success of previous events during the 2010 summer. Popular national venues such as Portstewart, Dingle, Enniscrone and Curracloe will be returning for more in 2011.

The IRFU Tag leagues cater for all levels of skill and fitness in mixed social teams, and also at selected locations, Summer Leagues, Spring Leagues, Mens and Vets Tag (Men Over 33). The growth of Tag has been greatly successful in spreading the popularity of the game of rugby and its non-contact nature and social aspect have made it accessible to both men and women in the specially graded levels.

Registration of teams to play is performed online only on the IRFU Tag website. As reflection of the current economic climate, all registration fees have now been reduced to €;495 or below per team, which means that a player in effect pays little more than €;4 per week to play an IRFU Tag season.
