Navan RFC to host 2019 Towns Cup Final

The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Provincial Towns Cup final 2019 will be played on 28th April next at Navan Rugby Club.

The Provincial Towns Cup was established in 1888 and is one of the oldest trophies in the history of Irish rugby.

This season is the 94th year of the competition, which Navan has won on 10 occasions.

Navan's new clubhouse was officially opened in April 2000 by the then IRFU President Bill Lavery. It is built on three levels, comprising 10 dressing rooms, a weights room, a medical room, shower rooms and toilet facilities in the lower ground floor. On the raised ground floor there is a bar and large function rooms.

 

The Rugby Bar can cater for up to 100 people. It is a cosy warm bar with two large screens for sporting events. The Balreask Bar is a larger function room which can accommodate up to 400 people comfortably. This room also has a raised stage and is ideal for any function, corporate event or private party. The first floor level has a new snooker room with two full size tables and is available for competitions and social snooker.
