Everybody needs a friend, so why don’t you become of a friend of Terenure Tigers?
Terenure Tigers are a rugby team for boys and girls who can’t play mainstream rugby. Based in Terenure College RFC, the team was set up in 2014 with the help of the IRFU and Leinster Rugby, and is made up of kids between the ages of 6 to 16. It gives children with Autism, Down’s Syndrome, epilepsy and many other conditions a chance to get involved and play rugby.
Many of these wonderful kids have never had a chance to play sport before, and are the sons and daugthers, brothers and sisters of kids who play sport every week. Now they have their own team to take to the pitches every Sunday morning, and after our third season, we have over 60 children playing for this fantastic team. There is always space for more, so if there is any child who wants to be the next Brian O’Driscoll or Lynn Cantwell, come and join us in Terenure every Sunday from 12pm.
Our Tigers have some amazing coaches that help out every week, and we are incredibly lucky to have Ireland coach Joe Schmidt as our Ambassador. Joe’s energy and enthusiasm is matched only by the players themselves, and he has brought a smile to parents and players alike on his visits to Terenure. The Tigers are always looking for more coaches to help out, so if you would like to help, just come down to Lakelands any Sunday at 12pm. No experience is necessary – just bring a good heart and a pair of boots and we will show you the rest!
