Thanks to everyone who played, watched and helped make the 2017 Heineken Kinsales 7s yet another record-beating success. 80 teams fought it out across five competitions, and the standard of 7s rugby reached another high. New entrants Projecx Waterboys from Scotland lifted the Mens Elite trophy, and first-timers King Prawns took the Mens Open trophy. Wooden Spoon Women won the Ladies Cup, Carley's Angels won the Mens Social and Blackrock won the Ladies Social. After some rain on Saturday the sun shone upon us on Sunday and the garden party atmosphere took over, with the tent rocking into the early evening. A big thanks also to our headline sponsors Heineken, our clothing sponsors Kukri and Hayes Cabin Services.
Mark your calendars for 2018 - this will be our 30th tournament and is bound to be a big one. May 5th and 6th 2018!
The Corona Virus Pandemic has resulted in the mass cancellation of many events worldwide. We had hoped to host the Heineken Kinsale 7s as scheduled on the May Bank holiday weekend this year. However, after careful consideration, consulting with stakeholders and speaking to medical professionals. We are unfortunately announcing the cancellation of the Heineken Kinsale 7s for 2020.
