The Clontarf 3rds team participate in Division 2 of the Metro League which is a competitive league of high standard. League and Cup matches are mostly held on Sunday but some can also be held on other days e.g. Friday evening under lights or Saturday.
Training for the 3rds is on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 pm in Castle Avenue.
Any player, whether new to the Club or having played previously, is most welcome. There is also the added attraction of a good and very enjoyable social element to the squad. Please contact the management for information.

Concussion / Player Welfare:
The welfare of players is of paramount importance. The International Rugby Board (IRB) has produced guidance on concussion which can be accessed through the following link: http://irbplayerwelfare.com/concussion
It is incumbent on all of us to be aware of the dangers associated with concussion and to take appropriate action when necessary.
Our penultimate game of the league proper against old rivals St. Mary’s was held at the earlier time of 12 noon on Saturday. It was important that we kept the momentum going and this we duly did with a 43 – 13 victory and a valuable bonus point to boot. As Seapoint conceded against Naas, that leaves us three points clear of Naas, so it all comes down to a winner takes all game next weekend (Sunday, March 12th in Forenaughts, Naas, KO at 3 pm).
