The Heineken Kinsale 7s kicks off this Weekend!

A warm Kinsale welcome to all players and supporters of the 29th Heineken Kinsale Rugby 7s this May Bank Holiday Weekend!

Over 80 men and women’s teams are competing in the Elite, Open and Social categories and there is a great calibre of players so plenty of competitive running rugby is expected. See for the schedule of events and fixtures on Saturday and Sunday.

Camarthen Warriors who compete in the Elite competition this year.

This is an over 18s event so photo ID is required. Children under 12 accompanied by parents are welcome until 6pm. Registration is in the entrance marquee at Kinsale RFC and weekend tickets are €30, day wristbands €20.

Thanks to Heineken and Kukri and Hayes Caravan Services as sponsors. Also to the hundreds of volunteers and to Kinsale Gardaí and Red Cross for their help and co-operation.

All proceeds go directly to youth development rugby at Kinsale RFC and this season has been hugely successful for the club with many teams reaching semi-finals and finals of their respective competitions.

There will be a shuttle bus from The Blue Haven to Kinsale RFC from 9am – 9pm (€2 each way) and a full social programme in Kinsale hotels, bars and nightclubs throughout the weekend.

The White Lady is offering €500 cash prize for the best team fancy dress on Friday 28th April so make the effort for the pre 7s party!

And Actons hosts the Closing Party on Sunday night from 10pm. This is great way for a team to celebrate together after the main event. You can buy tickets in the main marquee or on Actons door €10.

Good luck to all competitors – may the best teams win!
