    The Mini Girls first Lep Rugby Blitz season kicked off last Saturday In Ballina. The girls played Ballina, Claremorris, Galwegian's, Tuam & South Sligo. A great day was had by all. Some 100 girls were in action and the emphasis was on fun and participation. It was great to see such a large group of mini girls at the blitz and it was very clear from the onset how much they were enjoying it!. The Westport girls played really well and their skills and attitude were impressive. Oughterard, Loughrea & Castlebar are setting up a mini girls section shortly. That will mean we have 9 clubs with a mini girls section. We have our home blitz on the 3rd November and we expect 100 plus girls. We want to make this blitz a great success. We will be looking for help and support on the day. Home training this Saturday from 10am to 11.30am.


    On Saturday 29th September Westport U15 Girls Youth Team welcomes St Mary's (Limerick) to Carrowholly in a pre-season friendly.

    The return game will be a great experience for the Westport girls and we look forward to a good game of rugby on the day.

    Kick off is at 2pm so if you're not doing anything next week then come on down and support the Bulls

    New members are also welcome to come along to training on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8pm
