Darragh O’Sullivan has been appointed to the position of Head Coach, Ennis Rugby Football Club announced last week. This will be O’Sullivan's second tenure with the club as he was head coach from 2010-2012 .

New Coach

O’Sullivan, a wing forward with Garryowen for most of his playing career where he won 3 senior cups, started his coaching career in Kilfeacle as a player coach . He returned as Head Coach to Garryowen steering them to the highest honour in Irish club rugby winning the AIL League Cup in 2007.

Mr. O’Sullivan has been involved with the Rice College rugby team for the past 5 years and has seen many young Ennis players pass through the college in that time. He said his goals for the Ennis team are “Facilitating the development of young players, being in the hunt for playing honours ,and having players vying for positions within the team .”

Coaching Mini-Rugby – Introducing the Game of Rugby to Children in a Safe and Controlled Environment

Ennis U8The future of any rugby club is moulded in the ranks of the Mini-Rugby teams. Mini-Rugby covers teams from Under 7 (Leprechauns) through to Under 12. Here in Ennis we are blessed with plenty of youngsters, and we can field at least one team in each age grade (2 in most) where there are organised festivals, U8, U9, U10, U11, and U12.
The primary responsibility and concern of coaches at this level is to introduce the game of rugby in a safe and controlled manner that is appropriate for the abilities of each age grade. We do this by using the framework set out by IRFU, and issued from Munster Branch, The Long Term Player Development (LTPD). This framework is delivered to coaches in Training Workshops delivered by Munster Rugby Coaching Officers and Development Officers that are held regularly. All coaches are encouraged to attend this course and also to attend follow up courses.
