OLD Crescent RFC has launched details of Pig ‘n’ Porter 2017, the world’s largest tag rugby festival. The festival proper will kick off to competitive excitement on Saturday July 15 at the enlarged grounds of Old Crescent, Rosbrien.

This Pig’n’Porter fest is celebrating its 16th anniversary. Pigs might not fly but the years certainly have!

More than 120 tag teams will take part. This festival is rooted firmly in Old Crescent folklore, with the added celebration this year of Old Crescent finishing in the Ulster Bank All Ireland League Division 2B play-offs.

Pig ‘n’ Porter Festival will showcase the proud sporting tradition of Limerick to a wide audience and will provide a welcome boost to local tourism and hospitality sectors.

After the prizes have been handed out and weary bodies have had a chance to recover, the festival will continue into the early hours with a live band, Whitewater, followed by live DJ.

Pig ‘n’ Porter is made possible by main sponsor Heineken Light, and associate sponsors Bord na Móna, Keanes Jewellers, Davis Printers, UL Sports Campus, which will host some early rounds, and Limerick Post, media partner.

Old Crescent president Tim Duggan has warm words for another hardworking team, “our volunteers at the heart of the festival. Their dedication has ensured the success of the Pig ‘n’ Porter Festival over the years”.
