Thurles RFC taking #returntorugby seriously
It has been difficult for all sporting organisations across the country to get back to their sports after Covid-19,
Thurles Rugby Club is no exception. They have worked hard over the last few weeks to bring the Club up to the standard required for a safe return to Rugby and there were many hands to help!
Once the call went out, so many Club members got together to clean and paint the Clubhouse and prepare the fields for a new season.
Once all the preparations were in place the Club completed the Safety Planning Stage and moved to the non-contact stage of Return to Rugby, as per current IRFU Guidelines and Roadmap.
As part of the implementation strategy, we appointed Janet Bourke as Club Covid-19 Safety Officer.
Together with her team of Compliance Officers, Janet will ensure the implementation of our Covid-19 policies and procedures, in line with current IRFU and HSE.
Fundraising for any community organization has had to stop in the last few months, unfortunately this money is the lifeblood of clubs and will have a huge impact on their survival, Thurles RFC is no different though we have continued with our lotto throughout the lockdown, we had a winner recently Antoin O’Brien, a long term Club Member who won 9380 euros!
The Thurles Rugby Club Split the Bucket has been running now for the past 18 months and to date we have given out approximately €30,000 with a guaranteed winner every Sunday. We’ve even had 3 people win it twice.
