The recent opening of a State of the Art Body Conditioning Gym at Stradbrook, is literally the talk of the local Rugby Playing Community!  One of the main requirements of our Rugby Management Team was the urgent construction of a New Gym to accommodate today's very demanding strength building needs of Rugby Players.

A Gym sub-committee was formed and chaired by the tireless Declan Carroll, and all Club Members were approached to raise funding for the Project.

Generous donations wre received from many members and in particular, the Brophy family.


The new gym was duly completed in a record ten weeks!

The Club then decided that the Gym should be dedicated to one of our most successful Players and No.1 supporter, Niall Brophy. 

The Gym was designed by by EFP Gyms in Belfast, specifically for body conditioning and strength development. This has been complimented by the recruitment of a new conditioning coach. Our new Gym has also received very positive recognition by the IRFU who have organised training sessions for the Ireland Emerging Squad, South Africa, Australia and the Womens World Cup.
