Old Crescent RFC are delighted to announce that Cathal Monaghan has been selected as Club Captain for the coming season. Cathal is 28 and comes from Crecora in Limerick. He played his schools rugby with Crescent College Comprehensive and underage with Old Crescent RFC. Cathal is a teacher in St Munchins College.

Cathal has been with Old Crescent since he was 8. He progressed through our under-age system and his first adult game for Old Crescent was with the Club’s 3rd XV. By the end of that season he had played his first AIL game and since then he has been a constant member of our AIL squads. Cathal was part of successful campaigns culminating in promotion from 2C and 2B and our recent Charity Cup win.

Having just missed out on a place in the playoffs last season, Cathal is determined to go a step further with an exciting panel this season.
