Balbriggan RFC’s Race Night in the Bracken Court Hotel was a great success last night. We have many people to thank for making last night such a great success. These include, all who supported the night by buying horses, local businesses who generously sponsored each race, comedian Eric Lalor who put on a great show and members and friends who attended last night. Particular thanks to the members of the fundraising committee who organised the Race Night and ensured that it ran so well. Attached is a list of winners of each race. Well done to all!

Balbriggan RFC are delighted to announce that Fingal County Council have granted permission for the construction of a Clubhouse at our grounds at Bowhill, Balrothery.
Balbriggan RFC are grateful to Fingal Co Co and to those who assisted us in getting to this stage, particularly Councillor Tony Murphy. We will now move to the next stage in this vital project which will involve tendering for construction of the clubhouse.
Balbriggan RFC looks forward to working with our members, our neighbours and with our wider Community in Balbriggan and Balrothery in developing this state of the art sports facility which will benefit the men, women, youths and children that play rugby at Balbriggan RFC.

40,000 spectators were entertained by Balbriggan RFC’s U12s when they played at half-time during the Leinster v Munster game in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday October 8th. In what was a momentus day for the U12s and their families, it was great to see the huge number of supporters that travelled from Balbriggan RFC. The U12’s put on a great show, and should be very proud of what they achieved. It was a nice bonus that Leinster won too! Thanks to all who travelled to the game to cheer on the team. Thanks also to Gerry Buckley from Super Valu Balbriggan for providing goodies for the team. Check out our Gallery for more photos from the day.
Well done to the U12 on their performance at the Aviva today but against a heavier Portarlington side they got their first experience of Midland Beef. They were making a great comeback and looked just about to score when the ref ended the match. What a thrill to get to play at the Aviva on the same pitch as all their heroes and see Leinster get a well Continue reading →

Balbriggan’s U13’s played their first match at Youth level last weekend. This is a big step-up this year for the players, as they are now playing 15-aside rugby on a full pitch. The players wore their new team jerseys, which have been sponsored by Nicky Carvin, of Carvin Property Management. Nicky was on hand to present the team with their new set of jerseys. Sincere thanks from all at Balbriggan RFC to Nicky for his support, and good luck to our U13’s for the season ahead.
