Sligo RFC U13’s attended the Pat Lawler Tournament hosted by UL Bohs recently. They had a super weekend. There were 21 teams competeing from all four provinces. Sligo played and defeated Instonians, Ennis and Castle Island and were narrowly defeated by the host club UL Bohs. Having qualified for the Plate Semi Final, Sligo were beaten by Garyowen in the last seconds of extra time. Garyowen went on to comfortably win the Plate Final.
The full Sligo squad all played and can be very proud of what they achieved. Competing at a national level showed that under age rugby is alive and well up here in the North West. Congratulations to the coaching team of Mike McGrath, Niall Gray, Fergal Hickey and Mark Impey and all involved with the squad.
This coming weekend Sligo are hosting an U13 fun coaching blitz. Players from Dunmore, Claremorris, Ballina and Sligo will play in a mixed format commencing at 11am this coming Saturday April 30th.
