First XV – Munster Junior League Div 1

The weather delayed our return to action on Sunday last. We travel to Clonakilty this Sunday in our last fixture before the Christmas break. We will update details on Facebook and Twitter later in the week, but as it stands the fixture goes ahead.

Fixture: Clonakilty RFC V Newcastle West RFC v Sunday Dec 6th in Clonakilty @ 2.30pm


Club offers it’s condolences to Pat Darcy and family on the untimely passing of his mother Florrie. A very proud West Limerick woman and one of Ballyloughane’s best pupils.  Each week she read the Weekly Observer with a special focus on Old Mill news and the Newcastle West RFC notes. She was always happy to see mention of her grandsons Sean and Thomas in the match reports and joy that her son Pat (active member and notary coach of many under age team of NCW RFC), his wife Alice and twin daughters Emma and Sarah were always among the cheering supporters of Sean and Thomas’ teams. A charming woman with great interest all that was near and dear to her. May she rest in peace.

Munster V Leicester Tigers

Please book your tickets for Munster vs Leicester Tigers in Thomond Park on 12-Dec-2015.
