Welcome to Navan Rugby Club
A very warm welcome to Navan Rugby Club. It’s great to be back!
The past 18 months have been difficult and challenging for all. Finally we can look forward to a new season of rugby and a social reunion of our rugby family.
It’s fantastic to see the pitches in use again and the club full of life. The roar of the crowd at our first senior home match V Wanderers and the buzz of excitement among the supporters was testament to how acutely rugby was missed.
As always, safety is paramount in Navan RFC. Huge thanks to Alan Kennedy, our Club COVID Officer, and all our compliance officers for their trojan work in keeping us safe.
Our pitches are in top condition, having been rested and meticulously maintained by Ralph. Our clubhouse and facilities look great thanks to the continuous hard work and planning (via Zoom!) by our Executive Committee and Club Chairman, Eddie Lyons. Every member of the Executive has given countless hours to virtual and personal meetings. Always seeking to improve the club, research, manage finance, fundraise, maintain and improve our excellent facilities. Huge effort goes into planning and organising training of the highest standards for our various squads. Promoting a passion for rugby, liaising with The Leinster Branch and IRFU, and continually planning ahead for the best future of our club is our priority.
Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our club. Massive thanks to our coaches, managers, medics, parents and all who give their time and energy to our club – it is greatly appreciated.
Sincere thanks to our members and friends who supported the club financially during COVID and the restrictions. Special thanks also to Hannon Travel and all our generous sponsors.
Best of luck to our Club Captain, Conor Farrell, Head Coach Ray Moloney and our superb, highly qualified, backroom team in AIL Division 1B in the 2021-2022 season. Welcome to our new players. Indeed, best of luck to all our 24 teams: senior ladies and mens squads, minis and youths boys and girls and our inclusive Blue Dragons. Congratulations and continued success to our players who were selected for Leinster U18’s.
We have a Social Tag team and a Golf Society, so there are lots of activities for all on offer in NRFC throughout the year. Plans are in progress for a new gym, a walking track and upgraded pitch lighting.
We’re a growing and ambitious club, always looking to improve and achieve at a higher level. Without our volunteers and generous sponsors, we could not operate. We can accomplish even greater things with new members, supporters, sponsors & volunteers. If you’d like to be part of a welcoming, friendly, family Club, we’d love to welcome you to Navan RFC.
Wishing all our teams a safe & successful season,
Yours in rugby,
President Navan RFC
