Tag 2014 concluded on Friday last at Castlecara Rd with our finals and after party BBQ. It was an excellent end to what has been our most successful tournament to date. The club would like to thank everyone that has committed their time over the last 3 months – Aoife Kelly for all her work throughout the tournament – Nav, Liam, Colin, Peter and Kevin for the unenviable job of reffing and anyone that has washed a bib or lined a pitch, its all much appreciated. Special mention to club sponsor Murtagh’s Bar for hosting the awards and BBQ.Tag Finals 2014 Gallery

Grand Final Winners – Game of Tries
Game of Tries came through an epic final against last year’s winners, and tournament stalwarts Shy Tall Knights. The game went right to the wire but Games of Tries showed just enough resolve to see off the challenge and claim their first tournament.
