Interesting Article on the New Recruits ........and Well done Jamie the club is proud of you.



We will be holding our Annual Bulls Club Day on Sunday 5th August.

All members, players, parents, friends and supporters are invited to come along and help out in preparing the clubhouse and grounds for the coming season.

The activities we will be undertaking will include painting, sanding the pitches and general spring cleaning.

Kids will have plenty to occupy them with face painting and a number of other activities lined up - they might even throw a rugby ball around!

We will commence work at 12 noon and finish at 5pm followed by a BBQ and awards presentations at 7pm for last seasons rugby players, young and old, and club members who have worked their socks off.

We will also be holding over the July 100 Club Members draw until this day - make sure you are there to see who goes home 500 euro richer!

We would love to have as many helpers as possible down at the club for what should be a day of great fun for all concerned.

Please contact Pat McCormack direct on 087 241 2360 with any questions or suggestions.

Calling all Rugby Parents!
Don't keep buying new boots every few months as your child outgrows theirs - join the Boomerang Boot Club!
The Boomerang Boot Club
For the 2012-2013 Season, Westport Bulls will be introducing the Boomerang Boot Club. It is open to any member of the club and provides a way of getting a little extra mileage from those very expensive football boots that were bought only a couple of months ago and are now outgrown or abandoned for some other reason!
The idea is to facilitate a boot exchange whereby you can bring in pair of clean boots in good condition and take away another pair at no cost. You can keep on doing this as many times as you like.
If you don't have a pair of boots to exchange you can buy your first pair from the Boomerang Boot Club and exchange them at any time for another pair at no further cost. Boots will cost €10 per pair and this money will go to directly fund equipment.
If you have any good condition boots that have been outgrown or are simply surplus to requirement and you would like to donate them, we would love to take them off your hands. The more boots we have in the Boot Club the better chance our members have of finding a suitable pair to either buy or exchange.
The Boomerang Boot Club will be open from the beginning of August. Details will be posted on this website.
This Boot Club will reduce for parents and players some of the costs associated with playing rugby, it will reduce the amount of wasted resources through recycling and will benefit all members of the club through the raising of additional funds.
What goes around, comes around with the Boomerang Boot Club!
Boot donations can be dropped into Simon at Living @ Liberties, Westport Quay or call him on 086 392 0600 and alternative arrangements can be made. Please ensure all donations are clean and tidy and in good condition.
