Rhino football is back!!

This Sunday, March 15th, the Rhinos travel to take on the North Kildare Reapers in the North Kildare Rugby Club at 1pm.

This was a tense fixture last season where the Rhinos came away with a narrow 12-9 victory thanks to a 4th quarter field goal.

How will both teams shape up after a long off season of recruiting and practice? Only one way to find out! Head on down to support your Rhinos in the North Kildare Rugby Club, Kilcock. Kick off is at 1pm.

Last years fixture had its fair share of huge tackles and big passing plays, are we in for more of the same?

The game had no shortage of high flying tackles

In 2013 some of your Dublin Rhinos gave up some of their down time to help do some fundraising for Temple Street Childrens University Hospital and in the process raised €3,154 for the charity.

Always striving to improve, the Rhinos again gave up some down time over the 25th & 26th of October taking to the floors of Liffey Valley & Blanchardstown Shopping Centre to try and help raise even more money for the Childrens Hospital.


It is with great pleasure that I can now inform you that your Rhinos helped to raise a massive…


While the Rhinos helped to raise that money, the money was donated by the very generous people of West Dublin over the course of the weekend. So a huge thank you goes your way from all of us here at the Rhinos for helping us make this fundraiser even more successful than last years, almost 3 times as much money was raised!

For more information on Temple Street Childrens University Hospital and to see if there is any fundraising activities you would like to get involved in please visit their website.
