Garda Shane McGinn Inter Garda District Tag Rugby Tournament

  • Westmanstown Road County Dublin Ireland (map)

The Westmanstown Garda Rugby Football Club have decided to revive their Inter Garda District Tag Rugby Tournament this summer. In honour of their senior men’s player Garda Shane McGinn who passed away to cancer earlier this year the tournament will be held in Shane’s memory. The McGinn family have kindly donated a trophy which will be presented to the overall winner. We are truly honoured that Shane was a great supporter of our Little Blue Heroes and are very humbled that theMcGinn family have continued this support by nominating us to be one of two charities selected that the tournament will be held in aid of.

The competition will be held on Shane’s birthday on Thursday the 25th July 2019 at 12pm at the Westmanstown Garda Rugby Football Club. Weather permitting there will also be a barbecue on the day and into the evening. Big thank you to Synergy Security Solutions who have come on board as the tournament sponsors meaning 100% of all the proceeds on the day will be donated to both the Irish Cancer Society and Little Blue Heroes Foundation. Also thank you to Barry John Butchers who are supplying all meat for the Barbecue at the tournament and have made a donation towards the event.
