Club wheelchair rugby was introduced to Ireland in 1997 and Laois’s very own Garrett Culliton was the one to introduce it.

It’s a very competitive sport. The team train every Tuesday night in Vicarstown Community hall.


A spokesperson for the club said: “We hold the run to help pay for the use of the hall and all other expense during the year.

“This is our second year doing the truck and tractor run we are hoping for a big turn out.”


Registration is at 12 and they will leave the hall at 1pm to do a 32km run then back to hall for tea and refreshments and spot prizes.
