Connacht Rugby are one of the four provincial rugby teams that represent Ireland in the PRO14 and European competitions. The team is responsible for representing the Connacht Branch of the IRFU and their crest is a modified version of the provincial flag of Connacht.
Although the province contains only 8% of the total population of Ireland, the team is incredibly competitive and widely popular. In the club’s history, they’ve won the Inter-Provincial Championship three times and the PRO14 once. They’ve also reached the semi-final stage of the European Rugby Challenge Cup on three occasions.
