Speaking at the Pig ‘n’ Porter Festival launch, Tim Duggan, President of Old Crescent RFC, said “We look forward to welcoming taggers and friends, old and new, to Rosbrien on 7th July”.

Tim added “Pig ‘n’ Porter would not be possible without the generous support of main sponsor Heineken Light. We thank Heineken Light for helping to make Pig ‘n’ Porter 2018 a reality”.

He also thanked “our hard working team of volunteers, who will once again be on hand to ensure everyone has a super time. Our volunteers are at the heart of the festival and their dedication has ensured the success of the Pig ‘n’ Porter Festival over the years”.

This year music for the event will be curated by Steamboat Music, and we will have a demonstration game of Dodgeball between teams from Dublin and Galway after which people will be able to try it out for themselves, and we will also have a Super Social Tag Experience for teams to avail of on the day.
