Bud Light Tag Finals At Sligo RFC

The Bud Light Tag season at Sligo kicked off each Thursday evening in Hamilton Park Sligo at 6.30pm leading up to the grand finale of Finals Night Fancy dress which was the order of the day for on Friday 17th July 2009.

The Beginners’ League had a total of ten teams competing for the title of Top of the league. The Sun Shiners outshone all other teams on the final night and took the cup home beating Aylesbury Rules who were very close to taking the title however Aylesbury Rules claimed the Bowl on the night.

The Sun Shiners certainly were dressed to be seen in multicoloured clothes for the night. The Slow Coaches team managed to make most of their matches and certainly added to the entertainment on the pitch each week, however Cool Runnings were awarded the win for this match on the last night of Tag.
