Our Foundings

Waterpark RFC founded in 1925 for past pupils of Waterpark College, originally named Waterpark Old Boys RFC. The original grounds were in Ballinaneesha, and relocated in the 1960’s to Ballinakill, less than 1.5 miles from the center of Ireland’s oldest City, Waterford. In Ballinakill we have 3 main pitches, 1 floodlit all-weather football pitch, 2 floodlit all weather 5 a-side pitches, 8 dressing rooms, a gym, clubhouse with a bar and dining area. Our membership today is approx 600, fielding Mens, Ladies, Boys and Girls teams at Minis, Youths and Adult levels.

 

Our History

Waterpark RFC became a Munster Senior Club after winning the Munster Junior Cup for the third time in 1974. We retained our Munster Senior status until 2009 at which time we were the sole Munster Senior Club outside of the major rugby cities of Cork and Limerick. We reached Munster Senior Cup Final in 1983, narrowly losing a superbly contested final to Young Munster in a packed Thomond Park. We were the AIL Division 3 Champions in 2002-03 after a great campaign and superb final match in Belfast. Today we are a Munster Junior Division 2 following relegation last year and a number of consecutive disappointing seasons. Despite relegation, our senior side showed great spirit winning the Munster Junior Plate and our second’s side, consisting of a mix of experienced and youth players won the Mick Barry Cup.

 

Over the last 10 years, our youths teams have won 10 Munster Club titles and we also won the All Ireland Youths U17 Cup in 2007. Waterpark RFC is the current Munster U18’s and U16’s Club Champions as well as holders of many East Munster League and Cup titles. Our youths development has been recognized in the award of “Munster Youths Club of the Year” 3 times in the last 10 years and we are the current holders of same. We are proud to have produced so many great teams and players over the years, many achieving Inter-provincial and International caps at various levels including Jack O’Donoghue a current Munster Senior player and previous captain of Ireland at Under 20’s and 18’s.

 

Club Ethos

Our club ethos is to provide a safe, enjoyable and supporting environment to help every player reach their full potential. To extend our full respect to members, teammates, opponents and visitors. Our ambition is of course to regain Senior Rugby status. We look forward to welcoming new players, new members and all visiting clubs from Ireland and overseas to Ballinakill.
