There will be a bus for the players and coaches leaving the Local Car Park in Claremorris at 4:00pm sharp to arrive in Galway for 5:15pm. The game kicks-off at 6:15pm and should be over by approximately 8:00pm – we are expecting to arrive back to Claremorris (Local Car Park) at 9:30pm and we are asking parents to pick-up the traveling players from the Local Car Park at that time.
All traveling players are asked to wear their Claremorris Colts playing gear (Shirt, Black Shorts, Red Socks & Windcheater) for the parade, the guard of honour and the mini rugby match on Saturday. As there are no changing rooms available before or after the match can all players be changed into their Colts gear before getting on the bus and wear warm waterproofs/tracksuits/hats which can be taken off on arrival at the Sportsground in Galway. The players are also advised to bring a drink and a snack to eat during the game and it is strongly advised that each player brings a change of clothes especially if the weather is wet on Saturday.
