It’s a busy weekend in Kilkenny all round as the Rugby Club are hosting their annual Marble City sevens competitions
One of Ireland’s premier sevens event returns this Saturday with games, beer, food, and live music.
Festivities kick off around 12 o’clock out in Foulkstown with all supporters are welcome.
Speaking with club rep recently Garry Doyle he commented on Kilkenny’s chances coming into the competition;
“We have been competitive enough, where we got to the socials finals a few years. This year I say our women’s team will be hoping to give it a good rattle this year.”
“Railway Union do have a few Irish internationals. The standards are quite high, but we are confident that our men and women team will give it a good rattle this year.”
“It is a really good party feel, and just a great day out.”

It goes to show that despite the season-ending with some fantastic silverware for the club, including the Towns Cup, the life at the club never ends.
Recently they received the Mayor’s Award from outgoing Kilkenny Mayor Andrew McGuiness. Additionally, Andrew, congratulated the club on their season while also celebrating the women’s and girl’s teams on their successes this season, as well as the contribution Kilkenny RFC makes to the community, through minis and youths.
