Old Belvedere RFC

Old Belvedere RFC boasts two women’s rugby teams, one in the All Ireland League (AIL) Division 1 and another in Leinster Division 1.

Old Belvedere RFC celebrated its 100th year last year, while the women’s section celebrates its 25th year this season.

We welcome players of all skill levels from beginner to Irish internationals. Our ethos is to develop every player to the level that they aspire to play at, whether that’s for fun, to make friends or to play on the international stage.

This season is our 10th consecutive year in the All-Ireland League and 7th year in Leinster Division 1.

The women’s section was founded by former UCD women’s rugby players who wanted to continue their rugby career past college. The club continues to have a strong connection with UCD and many players line out for Belvo and Collidge each season.

The women’s senior XV have won the AIL three times and the seconds team have won the Leinster League. Prior to attaining Division 1 status, the club won the Division 2 League title and Paul Flood Cup.

Traditionally a 15s club, in the past few years Old Belvedere have concentrated on developing our 7s programme and we now play rugby 12 months of the year.

We have established a full pathway for girls to play from minis to youth to seniors. We now have girls training for minis to u18 teams every week with regular weekend blitzes.

Facilities include three fully floodlit pitches, gym, dressing rooms and shower facilities, car parking, fully licenced bar, kitchen and catering, function and meetings rooms, and outdoor entertainment and bbq areas.
