Connacht Rugby

Connacht Rugby compete in the Pro12 and the European Rugby Champions Cup. Their home stadium is the Galway Sportsgrounds, which holds 8,100 spectators. Connacht Rugby tasted major success in 2015/2016 through winning the Pro12 against Provincial rivals Leinster. This success of Connacht was testament to the progress and revival of the sport in the West, where often it is difficult to compete against the 3 other provincial teams in Ireland, Leinster, Munster & Ulster.
