On Saturday 27 November, Dungannon RFC will be joined by two British & Irish Lion legends – Dungannon RFC’s former flanker, Stephen Ferris and winger Tyrone Howe – as well as current Irish rugby union player, Gill Bourke. Former England players, Mike Tindall and James Haskell will also be in attendance alongside their The Good, The Bad & The Rugby co-host Alex Payne, as they visit Dungannon RFC as part of Vodafone’s Lions Legacy Tour.
Dungannon RFC is one of four clubs selected for Vodafone’s Lions Legacy Tour – an initiative dedicated to supporting grassroots rugby clubs in the UK and Ireland. The tour aims to raise awareness of the positive impact grassroots rugby has on the local community and help raise much-needed funds for the clubs, following the many challenges faced during the pandemic.
Gates will open from 9.00am and the rugby kicks off at 9.45 with the minis games against Portadown followed by our women’s senior team taking on Portadown at 11.30am before the men’s senior team take on Ballina at 2.30pm in the All Ireland League.
We have entertainment planned for all the family with a magician and face painter on site in the morning as well as the Jump, Jiggle and Jive experience from 9.30-10.30 in the clubhouse. There will outdoor food options available all day along with a bouncy castle (weather permitting).
