We would like to thank everyone who has been in contact with the club over the past couple of weeks for their support. As ever, our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our players, staff, supporters, sponsors, and our wider community. We would urge everyone to follow all of the advice from the government and other relevant authorities.
We would also like to thank our players and staff for their professionalism over this period, during what has been a difficult time for all of us.
The club has been inundated with enquiries from people seeking to offer support, and work has been ongoing behind the scenes to give people as many different avenues as possible to do just that. Below, you will find a comprehensive summary of all activities currently ongoing at the club. We also have a few more plans in the pipeline so be sure to follow us on social media for all the latest news and events.
Our new, red away jersey is now available to pre-order, and we aim to dispatch these in the first week of May. Click Here to pre-order now!
We will also have new t-shirts, retro training tops, pin badges and key-rings in stock in early April. A preview of some of these items is below:
You can now also purchase online gift vouchers for our online store, which can be used to purchase some of our exciting new merchandise arriving in the coming weeks, or later on in the year. To purchase an online gift voucher, click here.
Due to the current government restrictions, shipping of online purchases may take a little longer than usual, but we aim to dispatch all orders as soon as it is possible to do so.

Simulated Big Rebel Sleep Out:
Our Annual Big Rebel Sleep Out in association with Focus Ireland in Cork is scheduled for April 25th. Due to the current situation, this will now take place as a ‘simulated’ sleep out, with participants asked to sleep out in the safety and security of their own homes or gardens in light of the current health restrictions and protocols resulting from the Covid-19 emergency.
