Castlebar R.F.C. was founded, or perhaps reformed, in 1928 but only affiliated to the Connacht Branch in November 1934. The club has since established itself as one of Connacht’s most consistent Junior League Division 1 teams and is widely respected at this level throughout Connacht. At present, Castlebar R.F.C. is endeavouring to re-establish a thriving underage structure and the new floodlights at Cloondeash plus a second playing field offer an ideal platform to develop. Reformation, finally, seems a thing of the past.
