Tuesday 16 April 2019 11:51


We are delighted to announce that the Dail Bar is to become the main sponsor of ITRA Tag Rugby leagues in Galway. 

As part of the sponsorship package, the Dail Bar logo will feature on all referee jerseys, balls and tags used in Galway leagues, while a number of exciting social nights will take place in The Dail after tag in St Mary’s College.

With the Regional Championships taking place in Galway on Saturday 27th July, and the prospect of a Home World Cup in Limerick in 2021, ITRA Tag Rugby is experiencing a surge in interest both at an elite level with the Galway Regional Team, plus at a social level with new rookie players coming into the game.

John O’ Connor, General Manager of The Dáil Bar says:

We’re very proud to support a number of local sports team and have become the go-to bar to watch all the main sporting event. Therefore we’re delighted to partner with ITRA Tag Rugby as title sponsors. It’s a really exciting time for the sport, especially with the Regional Championships coming to the City of Tribes in July. The Dáil Bar will be hosting a number of specific Tag social nights over the Spring and Summer Leagues, in association with Rockshore, while also being open until late seven days a week for any Tagger looking for a great night out in the heart of Galway city.


Aidan Walsh, ITRA Sponsorship Manager says:

We’re thrilled to have The Dail Bar on board as our Social Partner and are looking forward to working with them to develop and grow the social side of ITRA Tag Rugby in Galway.
