Return to Rugby


Recently the IRFU published their Summary Roadmap and their Return to Rugby plans.

Shannon RFC have put a Covid-19 Committee in place who will be overseeing the return to rugby in our club and would like to take the chance to assure all of our members and players that we have implemented plenty of plans and procedures to ensure your safety.

COVID-19 Club Safety Officer

Trish Lehane has been nominated as the SRFC Covid-19 Club Safety Officer.

Trish has degrees in both Science and Physics and has studied Biology and Chemistry in college. She will be overseeing the implementation of the Club Risk Assessment and Safety Plan and will be a key figure in ensuring the club gets back to playing rugby safely.

Club Updates

All updates from the club will appear below. This page will be kept up to date and regularly amended to keep you advised of our plans. SRFC president David O’Shea issued correspondence to the membership last week updating everyone on the situation so far. This can be found here

We have now completed our Risk Assessment & Safety Planning Stage and have forwarded it to the Munster Branch. We are now ok to resume training in Coonagh progressing to the non-contact stage as per the IRFU’s summary roadmap. We are looking forward to our Summer Camp on July 20th. Ian Coll has again been busy in Coonagh putting clear signage in place. We are taking every step to ensure the safe return to rugby for all! (02/07/20)



Today (23/06/20) we have spent the day updating our facilities to include hand sanitiser stations all around Coonagh.
