Volunteers are the lifeblood and backbone of every sport and rugby is no different. Many hours of time, energy, and enthusiasm are dedicated in a variety of ways. Without the work that these dedicated individuals carry out Birr Rugby Club would cease to exist.  New members are always welcome and where available are encouraged to take an active part in the club.


Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do and thinking about how you want to benefit from volunteering is a good start to finding an opportunity that's right for you.
