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.
The President, Chairman, Committee and members of Sligo RFC extend our deepest sympathies to the O’Brien family on the recent passing of Bernadette CRYAN (née O’Brien)

Peacefully, in the loving care of the staff of Laurel Lodge, Longford. Deeply regretted by her loving husband Joseph, her children Fr. Gerard (Sligo), Ruth (Roscrea), Elaine (Dublin), John (Dublin), and Carmel (Carrick on Shannon), sons-in-law, Brendan Wright, John Ryan and Alan Burke, her grandchildren Peter, Méabh, Brenda, Sinéad, Emer, Caolan, Ellen, Aisling, Lisa, Colm and Cian, brothers, Tommy, Paddy and Vincent (Sligo), sisters Mary (Sligo) and Ann McMenamin (Mullingar), brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Rest in Peace
Reposing at her home from 2.00pm to 6.00pm on Saturday. Removal to St. Patrick’s Church, Ballinamore at 7.30pm. Requiem Mass on Sunday at 1.30pm. Burial afterwards in Aughnasheelin Cemetery. Family flowers only please. Donations in lieu to Alzheimer’s Society.
The O’Brien family have a rich association with the Club through Vinnie, Tommy and Paddy whom between them have served as former players, Committee members, Past President and current active and dedicated supporters of the Club. Our thoughts are with them at this sad time.
