VISITING TEAM FROM THE U.S.A.

Sligo RFC hosted a visiting rugby team from Portland, Maine last week.  Over 50 players and supporters were doing a tour of Ireland to celebrate their club’s 50th anniversary.

They played against a combined Development, Gulls and U20s team in Hamilton Park and the home team showed them no mercy, running out 20-12 victors over their guests.

The team and their travelling support were given a warm Irish welcome in the clubhouse afterwards, with entertainment by Dean Mahon.  Thanks to Ross O’Boyle, Niall Gray and to all those who organised the visit.
