About BRFC

Bandon Rugby Football Club was established in 1882. The Rugby Club facilities, which comprise a Pavilion and 3 full size pitches and an All Weather Pitch and is located a mile on the Clonakilty side of Bandon Town at Oldchapel.

Oldchapel has been the Club’s base since 1982, when in the centenary year of the Club the dream of many members came to fruition when the then president of the I.R.F.U Gerald Reidy officially opened the Pavilion and Grounds.

Bandon R.F.C is a Junior Club and today enjoys a large membership that stands at over 400 members.

Junior 1, 2, 3 & 4 Teams are fielded by the Club and there is also a very vibrant Underage section that caters from Under 7 to 20 year olds. A large number of adults give freely of their time every Saturday Morning coaching, training and running matches. Extra volunteers are always welcome and if you feel like helping out in any way, your services would be very much appreciated.

Like all voluntary organisations the running and maintenance of such a splendid facility has a tremendous drain on financial resources, all of which are financed from Club Membership subscriptions, and gate receipts.

Fundraising events are organised throughout the year and support from the people of Bandon is always very much appreciated so that this excellent recreational facility can continue to provide the people of Bandon with an opportunity to produce underage provincial quality players.

Our new season is now upon us and we now prepare ourselves for a battle to regain our Div 1 Status. Our Junior 2 and 3 sides both competed well last season and well done to them for their endeavors on the pitch lets hope for repeats at both levels this season.

As part of our complex on the Clonakilty Rd. in Oldchapel we have 3 full-size pitches a floodlit training pitch and of course our new All Weather Pitch which is proving to be a massive success. We also have a flourishing Juvenile Section to the club and it is through them we run our very successful TAG tournaments annually, this in turn has attracted many new recruits during the close season with a 2nd Summer competition being played now annually ..
