Fermoy Rugby Club, officially founded in 1970 is located at the old Showgrounds in the heart of the busy North Cork town. Steeped in history, rugby was first played at Fermoy by members of the British Army, who, in the 1900’s established their military barracks in what was then a garrison town. “There was a rugby team in Fermoy when the British army was located here. The club disbanded when they moved out in and around 1922 when the Irish Free State was first established”, said Sean Lomasney, former Club President. “Fermoy RFC was reformed in 1970 by founding members John McCarthy, Bernard Hyde, Tom Lawton, Tom Kelly and then club captain Dick Heaslip, father of Ireland international Jamie Heaslip”.
