It is our pleasure to invite your club to the 2013 Connemara 7’s tournament. The tournament will run over 3 days – Friday evening, all day Saturday and finals on Sunday. The tournament intends to provide some fast paced rugby and a fun filled weekend in Clifden, the capital of Connemara. We have a full line up of entertainment in the festival marquee and pitch-side over the weekend.
The tournament will cater for both men’s and women’s teams, Junior and Senior Competitions.
This is an ideal opportunity for teams to test themselves against other clubs/teams before the season begins and can also double-up as an end of season get-together.
The participation fee is €120 per team. More than one entry per club is welcome, as are International & scratch teams. Each team consists of a maximum of 12 players. Fee’s must be submitted with the registration form and are non-refundable.
Refreshments will be available throughout the weekend at the pitch and local hotels will have very competitive accommodation rates for teams entered in the tournament. Limited camping areas will be available at the grounds and we suggest you book early if you wish to avail of it.
There will be prizes for each pool as well as the overall tournament winners in both men’s and women’s leagues, and many other prizes as well!

This will in fact be the very first show in the Connemara Area for 2013,taking place as it does the week before The Maam Cross Show (this is a change from the usual show date, so as not to clash with the dates for the Omey Races and Triathlon).
There will be classes for In Hand Connemara Ponies ranging in age from Foals up to Seniors! There will be a Dog Show, Cattle and Sheep Show. There are superb cups, trophies, rosettes and prize money for all classes, and Special Rosettes for Young Handlers.
