Killarney Rugby Football Club will unveil its new pitches with a family open day at its grounds in Aghadoe tomorrow (Saturday).
The club redeveloped its playing pitches over the course of the last year. All the club’s home games were played at the community pitch in Barraduff over the last season allowing the new pitches time to settle ahead of the 2019 season, which will get underway in September.
A day of family fun gets under way at 1.30pm and all are welcome. It has been organised by the club and will include award presentations from last season, and friendly rugby matches between the Captain’s and the President’s 15s. The European Rugby Championship final will also be shown on big screens.
“The club usually runs an open day in September to start the season,” Liam Murphy, PRO of the club, said.
“We wanted to re-launch our pitches and felt it was better to do this at the end of the season. We want to show our supporters what we have done over the last few months.”
