We are delighted to confirm, following clarification from Sports Ireland and the IRFU, that from this coming Monday, 10th of May, outdoor for training for adults in pods of a maximum of 15 people is permitted. This includes contact training.

Please see below the steps outlined for the next couple of stages of #ReturnToRugby and you can see further information on the IRFU website HERE

Currently Permitted (ROI):

“Underage non-contact outdoor training in pods of 15”

Pitches can reopen but indoor facilities e.g. “changing rooms, showers, kitchens, meeting

rooms must remain closed apart from essential toilets.”

From Monday May 10th (ROI):

“Outdoor contact training for adults in pods of a maximum of 15 people”

“Contact training will also be permitted for those under the age 18 in pods of a maximum of 15 people”

Training can be contact, non-contact or a blend of both. This is strictly on an opt-in basis and should be based on the feedback of each individual playing group.

Please note, all clubs and schools who wish to play structured contact rugby when permitted under public health measures must undergo a minimum of four weeks of contact readiness training.

From Monday June 7th (ROI):

Subject to the public health situation at the time, “outdoor sports matches can recommence. No spectators are permitted.”

As per the #ReadyForRugby overview issued on March 16th 2021, all clubs and schools who wish to play structured contact rugby must undergo a minimum of four weeks of contact readiness training.
