Sundays Well Rugby Football Club is a rugby union team in Cork City, Ireland. Based in Musgrave Park on the Tramore Road, the club has a long and successful history as one of the main clubs in Cork City. The senior team currently competes in Division 2B of the Ulster Bank All Ireland League.

History[edit]

The club was first formed in 1906, however through lack of funds and permanent grounds, it was dissolved at the end of the 1907/1908 season. At the beginning of the 1910/1911 season however (under the guidance of the late William O’ Driscoll), it re-surfaced only for it to disband again three seasons later at the outbreak of the First World War. Tragically during that war quite a number of the club members were killed in the conflict. The club, in its present day format, was re-activated in 1923 under the presidency of John K. Kelleher and progressed to rented grounds at Houndsditch, Clogheen, Cork City, and then to grounds at Shanakiel, Cork City (the committee and dressing rooms were in a building at the foot of Shanakiel Hill). It was during the 1941/1942 season that the club moved to its current home in Musgrave Park, Cork City. In 1960 the present clubhouse was opened with an extension being added in 1981.[1]

The club has an active under age section with teams competing at all levels in local Cork leagues. Teams train in Musgrave Park and in local amenities supporting the numbers.
