Welcome to Navan Rugby Club

President’s address

Welcome to Navan Rugby Club; a community based, voluntary sports club. Located at Balreask Old in Navan, the 2020-2021 season will be the 96th consecutive year that the club will play rugby.

We look forward to the season ahead, although it will be like no other before, due to the worldwide pandemic, Covid-19. Rest assured, as always, safety is paramount at Navan RFC. All HSE & IRFU guidelines are strictly adhered to, in order to ensure the welfare of our players, members & visitors. Huge thanks to our Club Covid Officer Alan Kennedy, the volunteer compliance officers, coaches, managers & tireless Executive Committee for the meticulous organization.

The Club is run on a voluntary basis, led by an Executive Committee, assisted by various subcommittees. Countless volunteers manage, coach and assist with running our teams and superb facilities, which we are proud to make available to our members, players, visiting clubs & the wider community.

Our Senior Men’s team will play in Division 1B of the All Ireland League (AIL) this season, having gained promotion in three consecutive seasons. Progressing from Division 2C in the 2016/17 season in the Ulster Bank League, Division 2B in the 2017/18 season & Division 2A in the 2018/19 season, this is a huge source of pride in our club. Last season was cut short by Coronavirus, and after 5 months without sport they are now relishing the challenge of Division 1B for the 2020-2021 season. I’m also proud to see that many of our lads on our 1st XV team came up through the ranks of Navan rugby. Best of luck to our Club Captain, Conor Farrell & to Head Coach Ray Moloney.

Our Senior Ladies are extremely committed and are looking forward to the season ahead, we welcome Paul Beggy on board as Head Coach.  They have many new recruits and are going from strength to strength. As role models, our Senior Ladies have inspired our Girls’ Rugby. We are proud to have some of our girls on the Leinster & North East Squads. New members are always welcome!

We wish our Senior teams together with the J1, J3, & U20 squads all the best for a safe & successful season.

In addition to adult rugby, NRFC offers underage rugby to both boys & girls & there are currently 18 Mini, Youth & Mixed Ability teams catering for all age groups from U6 to U18s. Our amazing Inclusive Blue Dragons deserve a special mention!

We have an over 35’s Social Tag team & a Golf Society, so there are lots of activities for all on offer in NRFC throughout the year.

We’re a growing & ambitious Club, always looking to improve & achieve at a higher level. Without our volunteers & 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,

Rosi Meegan

President Navan RFC 2020-2021
