2017 International ticket form now available

With the 6 nations fast approaching the Ireland coaches have named a 40-man squad, which includes three uncapped players, for the opening two rounds of the 2017 RBS 6 Nations Championship.

Hooker Niall Scannell is named in the forwards and is one of the three uncapped players in the squad. Scannell captained the Ireland Under-20s at the Junior World Championship in 2012, leading them to the semi-final.

Sligo RFC has access to a small number of tickets and as members are aware the Club Facilities Development investors have been given priority for this three year period. As a result the limited remaining tickets will be available to members, who should complete this form – International Ticket Order Form 2017.

We encourage all of our members to give back to the Hotel and you can do so by doing any of the following;

  • Book one of the hotels many bars or function rooms for your family or work functions – weddings, birthdays, communions, confirmations, funerals, Christmas parties, staff parties, meetings, etc.
  • The Kitchen Restaurant is perfect for lunch or an evening meal
  • The hotel is hard to beat for overnight accommodation in both value and experience and even if not staying yourself, you can encourage your relatives, friends and colleagues to stay when they are in Sligo
  • The Café Bar on the ground floor and the View Bar on the first floor are ideal for any social occasion

A current special in the hotel is the Wine & Dine Gourmet Thursday – see below
