Minis girls took part in a silent game initiative in Claremorris today. All coaches and spectators were silent from the sidelines, the only voices heard were those of the players and all the decision making was theirs. The girls had a great day.








Rugby review 2012 - 2013 

What a fabulous year it has been for the Mini Girls in Westport. We had a great time hosting and going to blitzes in various clubs in Connacht. It’s great, that we now have 7 Clubs to play. Only 3 years ago, we were the only Club with a girls section in Connacht. It’s wonderful to see the growth and demand for it. The girls have played fair, with honesty and integrity throughout the year.

One of the highlights of the year was when the entire mini girl’s from Connacht were invited to the Sportsground in Galway in January for the Connacht v Zebre match. They paraded around the arena before the match. This was followed by a guard of honour to welcome the 2 teams on the pitch. The Westport girls played their half time matches with Great Spirit and gusto. They also enjoyed watching Connacht beat Zebre that evening.

We would like to wish Grace Browne-Moran, Ailbhe Fitzsimmons & Sarah Bourke all the best in the future. They will be missed by all the girls and coaches. They will be moving up to youth rugby in September. They could one day maybe follow in the footsteps of the Irish Women’s Rugby Team who secured an historic first ever Grand Slam and RBS 6 Nations Championship win against Italy on St Patrick’s Day. Women’s Rugby is one of the world’s major growth team sports and continues to reach out and engage more women and girls than ever before. The future is looking distinctly bright for Women’s Rugby.
