THE IRISH


The Washington Irish are a Division I & III Men’s Rugby Football Club in the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Football Union of USA Rugby.  The club was founded in 1980 and we are based in the Washington, DC, metro area of the United States.  Rugby is not only an intriguing sport, it is also a tremendous social community.

 

The Irish are very proud of our inclusive team culture, acceptance of new members, our tight knit family of current and past players as well as their families and friends.  We welcome anyone interested in the sport of rugby to come watch and learn about the sport.  Individuals interested in playing, experienced or not, are also very welcome to come to our practices and games and participate.
