Our "New" Oztag unisex Tag shorts & girls Tag 'tights' have just arrived.  We supply 'tag belts' for the children to play Tag.  But it is the only official piece of equipment you need to play.  They can be used in other sports and are very comfy for leisure wear.  Parents looking to order Oztag shorts / tights will be contacted directly by Simon.  They will be available to purchase on the night for €20 each.

The Irish Tag Rugby Association (ITRA) have been pioneering Tag since we first introduced the sport twenty one years ago to Ireland in the summer of 2000.

Junior Tag is a fun, non-contact sport for 5 – 12 year old boys & girls to play.  Your child does not need any previous Tag experience and we welcome boys and girls of all abilities. Tag compliments all team sports. They will be coached the basics of how to play Tag, rules, skills, and finish with fun games. The emphasis is on running, passing and tagging.(Removing a Velcro Tag replaces the "tackle"). 

We are launching this summer's Junior Tag coaching programme for 5 - 12 year old boys and girls from Junior Infants up to 6th Class in National School.

These coaching sessions all commence from Tuesday 4th May 2021 and will run for 6 weeks term until Tuesday 8th June 2021.

Our Tag programme will have 1 coach to 14 players in line with Gov sporting regulations.That group will not mix with anybody else.The session will last for 55 min, to allow 5min for players to leave / arrive and balls will be sprayed down and new tags replaced after each session.  

  • We will provide Tag belts for each child to play
  • Please wear appropriate footwear for grass
  • Bring a bottle of water for hydration.

Parents may stay to watch their child play, so long as they maintain the 2m social distancing guidelines.

We hope to see your children booked in and playing Junior Tag and making new friends.
