Old Crescent RFC

Old Crescent RFC has hosted the Pig‘N’Porter since its inception in 2001 and is also host to the Heineken Light Summer Tag League on Thursday nights. 55 teams will play their group games on 11 pitches here before being joined by the qualifiers from UL for the knock-out stages and finals.

Bar, food, shower and toilet facilities will be provided as we aim to make your day as enjoyable as possible. Stay for the full day & night as the party will get started in the marquee from the early afternoon hours!

University of Limerick

These state-of-the-art pitches will provide pristine playing surfaces for our teams whatever the weather! The 9 top quality pitches are flanked with ample parking facilities, the fantastic Pavillion Restaurant and UL’s on campus accomodation – part of our Stay and Play offering.

With the Tag World Cup on the horizon, this year our premiership rounds will graduate to UL to ensure our elite tag players have the opportunity to play on the North Campus’ exceptional IRB accredited rugby pitch.

Parking

Both Old Crescent RFC and the University of Limerick have excellent parking facilites for taggers taking part on the day. 

For those playing in the Club, we do recommend Car Pooling with your teammates, as the temptation to stay on for the night may just be too much!

For health and safety reasons, no glass is permitted in the car parks, on the playing pitches or any other area of the venues. Only drinks bought on the premises can be consumed on the premises.
