This summer sees IRFU Tag returning again, hosting Beach Tag events in all four provinces. With events taking place in counties Derry, Kerry, Sligo and Wexford, beaches will be alive with the buzz of Tag rugby, music and craic.
This 5-a-side form of Tag rugby is played by mixed teams of men and women and is a very popular fun break away for all who take part whether as players or spectators.
Taking place in the best beach locations around, teams from all over Ireland make a fun weekend of a Beach Tag Festival and are already getting set to register and ensure their places are guaranteed.
