Barna Knocknacarra Rugby Club or Na Bairneachaí was established in 2007 to bring Mini Rugby to Galway City and its environs west of the Corrib. The club first registration took place during the Rugby world cup and resulted in 40 players at ages from U9s to U12s. In 2013 the club has a player base of well over 100 at levels U8 to U12.
