Kilkenny RFC is the leading Provincial Junior Rugby club in Leinster. We aim to be the most inspiring and inclusive community rugby club promoting rugby values, enjoyment and friendship.
Play your part in supporting the current running of Kilkenny RFC and indeed supporting the future growth and development of the club by paying your membership subscription.
We have three senior men's teams, one senior women's teams, 7 youth teams (4 boys teams and 3 girls teams) and mini rugby from U6’s to U12’s. We have a total of almost 600 players registered with the club. All within a friendly environment, offering great networking opportunities, both socially and commercially.
We have been very successful on the pitch with our Mens 1st XV being the current holders of the Bank of Ireland Provincial Towns Cup and our womens team also winning the Leinster Division 5 Cup. We have also embarked on an ambitious programme of facility development around our grounds.
