Diarmuid's Team are Connacht Champions!

It's official - Diarmuid's rugby team are Connacht League and Cup champions for 2007! They gave Creggs a good stuffing yesterday in the Cup Final, 38 - 5 and won the League by default after the remaining teams they had to play chickened out and gave them walk overs.

The Club PRO and President described Diarmuid's performance as a "Man of the Match" display - read his report here and you can see more photos from the game here.

u13 Connacht Final

Diarmuid's Under 13 Rugby Team have made this years Connacht Final. It will be played this Sunday at 1pm in The Sportsgrounds, Galway.

Their opposition are the giant toppling minnows from Creggs whom Sligo beat comprehensively earlier this year in the league.

Yours trurly has blagged a press pass from The Sligo Champion so I'll be able to get in pitch side and take some photos. A full match report will be posted on Monday on the site.

If you have some spare time this Sunday your support would be appreciated. If you need a lift just leave us a comment and I'll try and arrange something.

Sligo Rugby Club Dinner Dance

The Annual Rugby Club dinner dance was on last Saturday night. I just got back from San Francisco that day so the night passed in a somewhat surreal way (I was hopped off my head on red bull - yuck).

Denise, Jenny and Tim joined us as well as a few other friends who quite frankly aren't good looking enough to feature on the blog - I jest I jest - I'm just to lazy.

See? I have winnnngs!

Connacht Trials

Forgot to mention earlier that Diarmuid had his first rugby trial for Connacht last week. He played well and got stuck in (as he does). The trial was for players under 14 so Diarmuid still qualifies for it next year and the experience of playing with the older lads will certainly stand to him.
