About Old Christians RFC

We are based at Ballincrossig, Rathcooney, Glanmire, Cork. T23 RK7R

Old Christians are the only club on the north side of Cork City. We cater for boys and girls from 6 years of age to whenever you wish to stop playing. The club used to have a close association with Christians brothers school, as we were set up as a place for ex school players, but we are now a club in our own right but do have players who attend Christians brother but you don’t have to attend there. We also have players who attend Presentation brothers, players who attend Glanmire Community College and so on. We have a wide catchment area catering for players from Watergrasshill to Mayfield, Glanmire to Ballyvolane and anywhere in between.

Our Minis are called Rhinos they are aged 6 up to 12, and they have regular games away and at home, both boys and girls either train on a Saturday or have a game.

Junior Rugby is U13’s up to U18.5. The boys and girls are split up at this age and play in leagues, all over Munster.

We also have 2 adult teams our Minor team is J3 and our Main team is J1 who are surging in their league and are on track to get promoted.


A Word From The President

Claire O'Brien :: Club President


It has been a great honour to be elected president of Old Christians R.F.C.

I would sincerely like to thank my predecessor, Dave Philpott, who gave great service to our rugby club.

While Covid-19 impacted us, we’ve had a team of dedicated covid safety officers led by Sabrina which has made Old Christians run smoothly throughout the pandemic.

Our club is thriving in all sectors. Thanks to our incredible coaches led by Ray & Liam for Rhinos and Shane & Conor for the youths and at the helm of the J1’s we have Ken O’ Connell with his committed team Brian & Doc.

Our captain of the J1’s Cian will no doubt drive us forward for the coming season.

I am most certain that our club is in excellent hands through our enthusiastic volunteers as without them this would not be possible.

Please feel free to approach me at any stage with enquiries, as I want to do the utmost for our club Old Christians R.F.C.

Thanking you, from your Club President, Claire O Brien
