The Rugby Club was founded in 1911 and fields 6 teams. The 1st XV play in Division 1A of the Ulster Bank All Ireland League. Other club teams play in the Leinster Leagues including two Under 21 teams, J1, J2 and J4. The club also runs mixed social tag rugby throughout the year. All levels of playing skills are catered for with the ultimate aim of improving playing standards throughout the club.
The highlight of 2013-14 season was the performance of the Ist XV which finished in third place of Division 1A, retained the Colours and reached the final of the Bateman Cup. The Under 20’s team won the trophies, the JP Fanagan League, the Charlie McCorry Cup, the intervarsities Conroy Cup and the Colours Jamsie Maher Cup.
Whilst the demands of the game are ever great in terms of fitness, speed, strength and skill, this club is well equipped to meet all of these challenges. The training / playing facilities include 4 grass rugby pitches (including the UCD Bowl), 1 synthetic rugby pitch, modern spacious changing rooms and a squad gym. The Clubhouse is the venue for match-day functions and for many social gatherings throughout the year.

The Tag Rugby Story
UCD RFC recently launched a new tag rugby league exclusively for students and organised by Sports Science students. The league runs on a Monday night and currently has 24 teams registered to play and matches are refereed by some of the club’s Under 20 players. Tag is the fastest growing team-sport in Ireland and this is certainly the case in UCD where we have more than 300 players playing every week over the two hour period.
It is excellent for the club to have this increase in participationnumbers and is a credit to all involved.
