Maynooth University Rugby Club is a rapidly growing and vibrant club that enjoys success both on and off the rugby field.

The merging of Maynooth University & Barnhall RFC has given a significant boost to both parties. We now have 28 teams, both male and female; ranging from U7’s to our senior All Ireland League team, and all play on the weekends with marked success.
Rugby at Maynooth University provides many unique opportunities for our students:

· Option to play social, All Ireland League, Women’s (Leinster 1 or Leinster 4) or Under premier under 20s rugby.
· Option to play tag rugby.
· A rugby scholarship programme for the elite student athlete.
· Highly qualified and motivated coaching staff (Rugby & Strength & Conditioning).
· Strong holistic sporting approach during scholars’ years at Maynooth University.
· A dedication to providing a well-rounded programme.
· Highly active committee and social scene

Maynooth University Rugby Club is active all year round with the aim of providing fun and enjoyment to all our members through social activities, club tours and much, much more. Maynooth University Rugby Club has become a valuable asset in the student lives of many of our members! If you are looking for elite or social rugby, male or female, we have the opportunity for you! The values of rugby can be a key component for life! If you would like to get involved please do not hesitate to contact me:
