Swords RFC 2016/17 Season

The 2016/17 season is well underway and Swords RFC are looking to rebuild.

Following a good preseason the squad is looking healthier this year following the loss of some significant players due to  retirement and emigration. The team is building itself up with the objective to become a dominant and progressive feature in the Leinster league and once again move up through the division. With new coaches Stephen Maher and Neal O’Keefe and an influx of new players this is a season of transition for Swords RFC but one that we know everyone will enjoy.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome on board our new main club sponsor Swords Orthodontics, we look forward to working with them. We would also like to welcome our other sponsors The Cock Tavern and NU Fitness on board. Without our sponsors we would not be able to continue to build the club and we look forward to working with them into the future. Make sure to check these out and support local businesses!
