Yeats Tavern Troopers Tag Rugby Team

Staff at Yeats Tavern aren’t ones to take it easy in the restaurant or out! With an active Tag Rugby team, the Yeats Tavern Troopers have their sights set on the prize, after a hugely successful last year.

Some of the Yeats Tavern Troopers Team with their Conference League Cup

The hugely successful team was started off two years ago by barman and rugby player, Michael McMorrow, who led the team to win first place in the Conference League when they first joined IRFU Tag Rugby.

Tag rugby is all about the fun and the Yeats Tavern Trooper embrace that with all their games, recently playing in fancy dress to the theme of ‘Nerds’. Aoife Clancy, waitress and recent graduate with a degree in Human Nutrition now keeps the team of twelve organised with training sessions and hopes to win again in their new division – Division 1. The team is made up mostly of staff members of Yeats Tavern but is open to anyone with an interest in tag rugby, once there is availability.

The schedule for Tag Rugby keeps the team on their toes, training Tuesday evenings and matches on Thursdays, but our dedicated staff and team players love every minute. Mark Gilroy, working on food preparation in our kitchen and tag rugby team member loves the ‘social aspect and keeping fit for the summer’, and Aoife, team captain enjoys the chance to ‘socialise with the staff and the great exercise opportunity’ of tag rugby.
