Well we are all systems go here in Kinsale ready to welcome 80 teams for another blockbuster Kinsale 7s. Our brand new grass pitch is being brought into service, this is our new Pitch 3 and is in front of the Presidents Bar, below pitches 1 and 2. This means our 'across the road' pitches are now pitches 4 and 5, and the old Pitch 5 (on the hill!) is now available as a warm-up area. Our shuttle buses run 9am to 9pm on Saturday and Sunday - cost €2 each, pick them up in town outside the AIB bank. Our Town office will be open Saturday and Sunday where spectators can purchase ID bands or gate passes. All players should register at the gate - please NO LESS THAN ! HOUR before your first kickoff time. Matches kick off at 10am on Saturday and 11am on Sunday. 10 teams in our Mens Elite section will be competing for the Heineken Kinsale 7s Cup - watch them both days from 12pm onwards on pitches 1 and 3.
Let the games begin!
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.
