Rugby at Railway Open To All
Railway Union Rugby Club is a friendly and progressive club based in Sandymount that caters for players of all backgrounds, gender, ability and nationality.
Railway fields three adult men’s sides, a men’s U20 side, two adult women’s sides and girls’ U18s and U15s sides.
Railway has been one of the most successful clubs in Ireland over the last three years, winning over 20 trophies across all teams in the club.
Railway’s Men’s 1sts play in the Leinster League, with the Men’s 2nds and 3rds playing in the Metro League and the Men’s U20s in the JP Flanagan League. Railway Women’s 1sts play in All Ireland League Division 1 and are current All Ireland Cup Champions, whilst the Women’s 2nds play in the Leinster League Division 1 having won Division 2 last season.
The club is open for members across all teams.
• If you play rugby and have just moved to the area and want to join a club
• If you’ve previously played rugby and want to get back playing
• If you’ve gone stale in your current environment and want a new challenge
• If you want to take up rugby for the first time
We also have plenty of off-the-field roles where you can get involved too, from coaching to managing to administration or just plain helping out. This can help you develop your leadership, communication and organisational skills – you might not necessarily have rugby experience (for example, this author and award winning Leinster PRO of the Year joined with no rugby experience).
In return, we’ll give you a strong social scene, a circle of male and female friends outside of your normal environment, and good craic and plenty of fun!
