The Pig’n’Porter Tag Rugby Festival, the world’s largest and best tag rugby sporting festival, is held in Limerick every July, and this year the Festival is celebrating its 18th anniversary!


Old Crescent RFC, in association with, will host the 2019 Pig ‘n’ Porter Festival at its grounds in Rosbrien, Limerick, on Saturday, 13th July 2019, when over 120 tag teams will take part.

The Pig ‘n’ Porter Festival will showcase the proud sporting tradition of Limerick to a wide audience and will provide a welcome boost to the local tourism and hospitality sectors including accommodation providers, bars, restaurants and visitor attractions.

This year’s PigN’Porter Festival sees the arrival of teams from far and wide, with returning teams from across Ireland and the UK, and for the first time we welcome taggers from South Africa.

Speaking at the Pig ‘n’ Porter Festival launch, Charlie O’Neill, President of Old Crescent RFC, said “We look forward to welcoming taggers and friends, old and new, to Rosbrien on 13th July”.


He also said Old Crescent RFC was delighted that the success of the Pig n Porter Festival over the years had been instrumental in securing the Tag Rugby World Cup for Limerick in 2021.


Charlie concluded “Pig ‘n’ Porter would not be possible without the generous support of our main sponsor Heineken Zero”


This year music for the event will be curated by Steamboat Music, and we will have a demonstration game of Roller Derby and we will also have a Super Social Tag Experience for teams to avail of on the day.
