Pirates Of The Regatta



Cobh Pirates were delighted to be part of this years Cobh Regatta. For those who missed out, we had a stall allowing people to throw sponges soaked with water at players of their choice. This, while generating much needed funds for the adult teams, brought great enjoyment to all who had a go. We would like to thank the committee of the regatta for giving us “our spot” and look forward to making it an annual event.

On the juvenile front our tag tournament is growing by the week and the finals will be played on Saturday 28th August from 2 pm onwards with a bbq to follow. Entry into the club will be free with a free bbq for all the juvenile players.This will be a fun filled family day with enjoyment and entertainment for all the family. Also taking place will be a Junior1/2 game between Cobh and Old Christians. This will be the first outing of the season for both teams so its well worth a look.
From the first Saturday in September (Saturday 4th) our juvenile season commences. Training will take place on Saturday mornings at 11a.m. All new players are both welcomed and encouraged to come along and give it a go. The club caters for children from the ages of 6 and upwards. Last year the Leprechaun rugby was successfully introduced and this year it will cater for children born in 2005. All children are closley supervised and are coached by our experienced coaches with the relevant courses etc undertaken. The juvenile flag day takes place this coming Saturday,21stAugust, at various locations around the town. The juvenile section of the club would appreciate any donations, big or small, for the increasing costs of fielding teams at

It is with great pleasure that Cobh Pirates wish Eoin McSweeney the very best as he continues his involvement with the Munster Youths squad this year.
