Club Lotto




Tullow R.F.C was founded in 1928, but it had a very stop start existence over the following thirty years or so. It wasn't until 1971, when it was reformed under a more sound footing, that it took a deep root in the community.

A very interesting footnote is that many of the same families involved in 1928 are still actively involved to this day, e.g. the Brownes, the Roches, the Dawsons and the Kennys. Over the past thirty years the club has gone from strength to strength both on and off the field and today stands proudly and firmly established in the greater Rugby family.

Recently, local man and former player with the club, Bernard Jackman (pictured, left) won his first cap at full international level against Japan.

In April this year local boy Sean O Brien (pictured, right) captained the Irish U-18 XV in search of the Triple Crown. In previous years Mick Jackman has represented Ireland at A level and Harry Byrne at U-19 level.

We are justifiably proud of all four. At the moment we are fielding teams at all levels from U-10s to U-20s, as well as three adult teams. Our U-20s were unfortunate to lose narrowly in the final of the Gale Cup last year.
