Youth Rugby

Welcome to Youth Rugby at St. Mary’s RFC

Here at St. Mary’s RFC we cater for rugby-playing youths (boys and girls) from the Under 13’s right up to the Under 18s. Our youths membership is drawn from a wide range of local schools, from St. Colmcille’s in Knocklyon to Templeogue College, from St MacDara’s to Tallaght Community School, and also from further afield schools, such as Newpark Comprehensive and Wesley College.

Our Youth Rugby is run by a team of almost thirty very enthusiastic volunteers, all of whom attain the appropriate IRFU coaching credentials and the required Garda vetting.

St. Mary’s RFC cooperate fully with the IRFU & Leinster Rugby initiatives for player development, and participate in the multitude of official Leinster Leagues and Cups every season.

All of our Youths teams train on Friday evenings from 5:30 to 7pm, with competition games on Sunday mornings from 11:30 to 1pm. The older age groups also have one additional training evening per week during the season.

St. Mary’s RFC Youths have done very well in recent years, we are going places, and we hope you’ll come along with us! Just contact the appropriate manager or coach below, and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon.
