Old Crescent RFC is currently riding high at the top of its Division in the Ulster Bank League and has ambitious plans to develop its facilities at Rosbrien. The Club recently purchased additional land adjoining the club grounds which will effectively double the size of the club grounds and secure rugby at Rosbrien for club members and the wider rugby community for future generations.


The Mid-Western Cancer Foundation was set up to provide holistic care for patients with cancer and to support cancer research in the Mid-West region. The Cancer Centre in Limerick provides a full range of services to patients with cancer. Funds raised by the Charity are used to better the Cancer Centre facilities and to make sure that the best treatment, services and cutting edge technology is available to Cancer Patients in the Mid West.


At the Fashion Event launch, Ger McNamara, President of Old Crescent RFC, said “Old Crescent RFC has a long association with the Mid Western Cancer Foundation, and we are delighted to be teaming up with them again to help raise much needed funds for the cancer charity and for club development. Together, we are looking forward to having a superb Fashion Event in the Strand Hotel on the 25th February”.
