Appeal from Mitchelstown Rugby Club

This week we received an impassioned appeal from a man who wants to find a permanent home for his local rugby club.

Just recently, we were delighted to be able to announce a new home for Kilworth Celtic Soccer Club after many years of campaigning and maybe, just maybe, there is a landowner out there who could offer the Mitchelstown club a plot of land, preferably one close to the town, that would suit their needs.

They are not looking for a handout, just an opportunity to be able to purchase a place where they can establish a few playing pitches with the necessary facilities. What a leg up this would be for a club that has made massive strides in its short lifetime.

Maybe then, just maybe, you can help?

The club has been attracting a lot of young people to their ranks in recent times at mini and juvenile level, but they need more help.

So, for others of you who may be interested, the club they would also welcome you as a volunteer to help with fundraising and other associated club activities.
