Co Cavan Cricket Club Open Day 2017

Co Cavan Cricket Club held an open day in the rugby club grounds in Swellan Park on Saturday 24th June .  
As a Club we were delighted to provide facilities for Co Cavan Cricket Clubs Registration match.  
 Swellan Park proved to be the ideal venue for good cricket. 
 There was a good crowd and ideal weather.  Refreshments were provided in the clubs function room.  It was great to see a minority sport, such as cricket played by a wonderful cross-section of the local community.  Cricket seems to have a healthy future in Cavan and the Rugby Club wishes them every success in the future.

National Schools in Cavan -  Rugby Tag Day - June 2017

Swellan Park hosted a National Schools Rugby Tag Day on Friday 9 June. 
The local schools that attended were; Farnham Nat School, Killygarry Nat School and St Felims National School, with 128 players and 12 teachers in attendance.
It was a lovely early Summer day and the standard of play, by the mainly beginner players, lived up to the conditions.
 Over the past 5 weeks two coaches from Co Cavan RFC have been giving coaching sessions in each of the schools, and it was clear to see the evidence of good coaching. 
The club would like to thank the schools' principals and teachers for supporting the event. Also like to acknowledge funding from Ulster Rugby and support from Darren McGuigan and Zoe Templeton. Co Cavan rugby club hope to have schools coaching on a regular basis from September onwards.
A big thank you to coaches Andrew Vickerman and Salesi T'upilatu. 
Thanks also to all the volunteer referees and helpers on the day.
