Nenagh Ormond Rugby Club have started fundraising efforts to maintain their facilities and to have them ready for when Covid restrictions are lifted.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to get them through what they’re calling a lean period due to the pandemic.
The club was founded in 1884 and incoming vice-president, Keith Hayes says they want to ensure it’s still there for generations to come:
“Our membership in total was probably just under 600 people, but I’d say 60% plus of that are under age. They are the future for Nenagh.
“That takes a lot of volunteers out there and it takes a lot to run a club, to provide facilities and try and do our best for these kids the whole way up and hopefully they’ll continue until they reach adult levels.
“Certainly, a big drive this year has been that the membership numbers have got stronger.”
