Regional Tag

The annual regional championships (aka "Regionals") is Ireland's highest level of tag competition apart from international test matches. It's our equivalent of the GAA All-Ireland championships, where the best club players from respective counties are selected and trained with a major competition in mind. Representative sides of Ireland's major tag-playing regions compete in several categories in a one-day tournament towards the end of July, and the region that accumulates the most points becomes Ireland's national champion. Dublin is the reigning champion having squeezed past Limerick in a dramatic finish in St. Mary's College RFC on 28th July 2018.

The regions field teams in Men's Open, Women's Open, Mixed Open and Mixed Social (a developmental category). Some regions have also fielded teams in the open section which were made up of players who qualified for the older international teams ie mixed senior, woman’s 27 and men’s 30. 

How can I get involved? 

Regional teams are invitation-only, so you either need to get spotted by a coach, attend a trial, or reach out directly to a coach or manager. Since they're always trying to get the edge over one another, they'll be delighted to hear from you and to give you a shot.
