Date: Sunday 30th May, K.O. 2pm.
Venue: Greystones RFC, Co. Wicklow (home venue of Dublin Rebels).
Main pitch with covered seating is being used for the JC game.
There will be a full bar at the game and food afterwards.
All IAFL players who have already been selected are guaranteed to play (assuming they turn up on Saturday).
We anticipate that there are c.20-25 free spots remaining on the roster. Therefore ALL IAFL players are invited to attend the training session on Saturday 29th May and tryout for the team. There are a lot of spaces to fill, therefore everyone who makes the effort to attend will probably be included in the squad on Sunday. Everyone who kits up for the game will get game time.
The training session on Saturday 29th May will also be at Greystones RFC and will start at 13:00 sharp.
What to bring:
Bring your own helmet/pads. Even though the Saturday training will not be contact intensive, players should attend with full kit.
On Sunday, you’ll be supplied with an Ireland jersey (and hopefully pants – they’re in transit). You will wear your own helmet (as is customary for representative games). The jerseys come in a variety of sizes and jersey numbers will be decided after the Saturday session.
Please make sure your helmet is clean.
Socks are not provided, so please bring your own – preferably white.
If you intend to wear a long sleeved sweatshirt/undershirt during the game, please make sure it is a neutral colour or green. No bright colours that don’t match the Ireland uniform (green/white).
How to get there:
See links to map below –zoom in and out.
Greystones Rugby Club is on the R762, just south of Greystones town centre. Greystones is just of the main N11 road (Dublin to Wexford) – south of Dublin/Bray, north of Wickow town.
The no. 84 Dublin Bus from Dublin City Centre stops directly outside the Rugby Club – click on the link below for details/timetable.
Cheap hotel accommodation has been arranged by Andy Flynn (Rebels manager) in Greystones:
LaTouche Hotel in Greystones – contact Andy Flynn 086 1028001 cost: €45 p.p.s.
If you do not want to stay at the hotel and have no accommodation in Dublin/Greystones – you can stay with a Dublin based player/coach (bring sleeping bag etc) – contact the National Team management – John Durrad, Paul Whelan – if you need accommodation to be arranged.
You pay your own accommodation & travel costs.
Food will be provided after the game in the Rugby Club (burgers/chips sort of stuff) at a cost of no more than €5 per person. National Team management will probably ask for a €5 donation from all players as they’d like to pay for the JC players’ food as they are our guests.
