|Full name||Aughrim Rugby Football Club|
|Ground(s)||Aughrim Sports Complex, Aughrim, Co. Wicklow|
During the previous year of 2010 research had been carried out on primary and secondary schools throughout South County Wicklow to see if it could recruit and put together a sustainable rugby club. As of March 2011 Aughrim Rugbys Schools Partner Program consists of 7 primary schools.
The Aughrim Rugby logo is based on the red kite bird of prey which was re-introduced to the Wicklow hills starting in 2007. The club colours for the jersey are royal blue and white linings; the shorts are royal blue; and socks are royal blue and white linings.
Aughrim Rugby will initially cater for mini rugby up to the age of under 12's (season: 2011/2012). Youths rugby will follow during season 2012/2013.
As a new club Aughrim Rugby's medium term plan throughout year one was to appoint volunteers via their volunteer management program. Key positions Child Welfare Officer(s), Coach Development Officer(s), Volunteer Coordinator(s), Schools Liaison Officer(s), Player Recruitment Officer(s) and Club Development Officer(s)have been filled based on previous skills in business and sporting acumen.
On April 2, 2011 Aughrim Rugby held its launch day with over 96 children registering to play for Aughrim Rugby.
Aughrim Rugby was one of several lucky clubs to be nominated for funding via Ulster Bank Rugbyforce in 2011.
