South East Galway Warriors Club Formed for Women’s Rugby in County Galway

‘South East Galway Warriors’ has been formed to put a senior women’s rugby team together going forward with the Loughrea, Ballinasloe, Gort and Monivea clubs involved.

As popular as women’s rugby has been in Galway in recent years, outside of Galwegians and Tuam/Oughterard, there has been no where for players to go once they finished under-18 in east Galway.

The four clubs have come together to start trials and build a squad for Division 2 of the Connacht League next season.  Open trials begin in Loughrea on August 7th with training proper starting in September.

To chat about the formation of the club, the need for more coaches and women’s rugby in general, Galway Bay FM’s Darren Kelly was joined by Maurice Moloney (Loughrea), Fraser Donaldson (Gort) and Steve Goode (Ballinasloe).

The ‘Over The Line’ weekend preview show with Darren Kelly broadcasts every Friday evening from 7pm on Galway Bay FM.
