Athy to Auckland

Since 1880 Athy Rugby Club has been at the heart of the rugby community. Our club is growing with an ambitious future for our members, putting our community at it’s heart.  

Athy RFC is very proud to field both men’s and a women’s team at senior level.   Hundreds of children and teenagers cross the whitewash every week with hopes and dreams of playing in the blue and white of Athy RFC. Those hopes and dreams are realised through the hard work of its members and the continued support of the wider community. 

To raise funds for the maintenance of our playing facilities we are asking you all to be part of our 18,203Km walk from Athy to Auckland (#Athy2Auckland ) this January.

Every step counts and every cent helps so all supporters, old or young, past or present, at home or abroad can play their part by getting moving and donating as much as they can  or adding a few kilometres to the total. If you are in position to do both, all support will be greatly appreciated.

With the money raised, some much needed repairs will be carried out to the fencing surrounding the first pitch and we also hope to purchase a new lawnmower to ensure the continued maintenance of the four pitches in the club. 

You can tag us or use the hashtag  #AthytoAuckland to keep us up to date on your progress on social media. 

Are you ready to put on your walking/running shoes to support our great club? Are you ready to help Athy RFC to continue to grow and nurture rugby in our community? If you are , then
