Vision Sports Ireland and the IRFU are delighted to be supported by The Change Foundation and Old Wesley R.F.C to bring Vision Impaired Rugby to Ireland for the very first time.

Vision Impaired (VI) Rugby was established by The Change Foundation in the UK in 2016, with teams already in New Zealand and Japan the aim is to now grow the game across the world. The gameplay takes into consideration a wide range of sight conditions whilst maintaining the fundamental codes, laws and spectacle of rugby to both the players and spectators.
