Lismore RFC is a rugby union side based in Edinburgh, Scotland. They were founded in 1901.[1]

They play in the East Regional League Division 1.


Lismore's foundation dates back to 1901, when the Royal High School FP club was based at Jock's Lodge in the east of Edinburgh.[1] Some of the players felt that they were being excluded from RHSFP's team, so started their own club, named after Lismore crescent nearby.[1] The club moved around several times, locating to Duddingston, and ending up in their present location in a south side clubhouse, and playing near Cameron Toll.

Milne's Bar on Rose Street, was their clubhouse around the Second World War period.[1]

They started a women's side in 1994.[1]
