Landsdowne Minis & Youth Team
The Lansdowne Minis & Youth Team was established to provide a safe, fun and friendly environment for children through rugby each Sunday, where they can develop friendships based on the principles of fairness and trust.
When it comes to the game itself, it’s obvious that the children put their hearts and souls into the match as they fight hard to gain each point. Luckily, the Irish Red Cross are on hand if things become too competitive!
The Landsdowne Minis accept players, both girls and boys, from 5years upwards who develop a range of skills, fitness and dexterity in a fun environment, where healthy sport is at the centre of their activity.
The club is managed by an army of volunteers and parents are encouraged to participate both in coaching and the ongoing development of the club.

O'Callaghan Hotels are proud to be a sponsor. More information is available on the Landsdown Minis on their website at LansdowneRugby.com

Get to know us
O’Callaghan Hotels are one of the leading privately owned hotel groups in Ireland. The O’Callaghan Hotel Group was established in 1990 when the first hotel, the Mont Clare opened in Dublin. Over the years the Group has opened four hotels in Dublin, The Davenport Hotel in 1993, The Alexander Hotel in 1997 and The Stephen's Green Hotel in 2000. Each hotel is unique in its style and offerings, from traditional to modern contemporary and boutique style. One thing they all have in common is the location. Each hotel is perfectly located in down town Dublin close to cultural attractions and some of Dublin’s main financial, convention and business districts.
While developing its portfolio in Dublin, the O'Callaghan Hotel Group continued its expansion internationally by opening two international properties the first in Gibraltar in 1996 and the second in Annapolis, Maryland in USA.
Over the years the hotels have undergone a number of refurbishments and enhancements to maintain the excellent and personable service levels and facilities.
