From by  Patrick Lynch on 25th November 2018

This is your chance to get to see the greatest rugby competition on the planet alongside the IRFU Charitable Trust.

The Trust this year celebrates its 40th anniversary and are in need of all the support they can get over the next 12 months to aid their stellar work.

The charity specialises in the treatment of severely injured rugby players within Ireland, with 35 players across the country affected having picked up serious injuries on the field of play.

Since 1978, the IRFU Charitable Trust has worked with the aim of assisting its members in their everyday lives.

From basic medical care and home alterations, to accessing the most cutting edge technology available, the Trust is an ever-present support to the stricken members

of the Irish rugby community.

The Charitable Trust has called on the public to help them continue this vital work, to ensure that these everyday heroes continue to live their lives with dignity and a degree of comfort.

In order to raise some much needed funds, the trust will hold a charity cycle/walk during the World Cup next year which will bring participants close to the action.

Those who decide to partake in the event will take in the likes of Fukuoka, Hiroshima and Shimanami Islands, Onomichi, Kyoto, Mount Fuji and Tokyo during the epic trek.

The Charity Walk & Cycle will take in Ireland’s final pool match as well as Quarter Final 2 and Quarter Final 4 with the group departing Dublin for Fukuoka on the 9th of October before returning on the 22nd.

This Charity Walk & Cycle is a once in a lifetime opportunity and those interested in partaking can gather more information by calling Linda on 01 647 3866 or via email at
