Killaloe has never entered a team into the community games rugby before so it was very exciting to be able to field a team, albeit a very young one. Only one of the boys currently plays U11 rugby, the rest play U10 & U9!
Round 1: Killaloe v Ennis St Johns – won 5 tries to 2 with 3 scores from Ciaran, and a try apiece for Gordy and Stephen
Semi final: Doora Barefield A v Killaloe – Doora Barefield were very strong and scored 4 tries in the first five minutes. (They were the overall winners on the day). The Killaloe boys never let their heads go down and battled hard for the rest of the game only conceding one more try before the final whistle blew.
3rd/4th playoff: Killaloe v Doora Barefield B – the team was determined to come away with a medal and they did! They tackled as if their lives depended on it and played some great rugby. Try scorers were Ciaran Rodgers (3), Gordon Wood (2), Shane Geraghty (1), Stephen Geraghty (1).
Team: Tony Foley, Ciaran Rodgers, Laurent Chateau, Stephen Geraghty, Shane Geraghty.
Front: Liam Daly, Alex Chateau, Aiden Foley, Gordon Wood, Diarmuid Coleman
On Sunday 23rd March 2014, our U11s hosted teams from UL Bohs, St Marys RFC, and Scarriff RFC. Ballina Killaloe RFC fielded two teams.
It was the first time that many of our boys set foot on our new hallowed ground and boy did they do it justice. All our stars were aligned because the pitch was magnificent, the sun was shining and the standard of rugby was fantastic.
Our visitors were blown away by our new facilities! The standard of rugby on display was of a high quality and some of the BK RFC play was so good that visiting coaches remarked on the high standards displayed by our boys on the pitch.
Our U11s squad has been invited to play during the half time interval of Munster’s Heineken Cup match v Racing Metro on Sunday 20th March 2013. Kick off in this crucial Heineken Cup tie is 12.45pm.
With a full house expected, this will be a great opportunity for the U11 players involved to show their skills.
Best of luck to our boys (and to Munster of course!)

Ballina Killaloe RFC U11s side were invited to play a match at half time against Thurles in Munster’s St Stephen’s Day Magners League derby game against Connacht at Thomond Park.
Our lads capped a fantastic evening with a hard fought 2-0 win, with two wonderfully taken tries by Jack O’Mahony.
This was a once in a lifetime experience and the occasion will live long in the memories of all players involved.
Many thanks to all the U11s coaches for organising this wonderful event – Niall Tuite, Ger O’Mahony, Joe Gilmartin, David Dalton & Jonathan Walsh.
