Hibernian Men

The Hibernian Rugby Football Club, based in Levittown, PA was founded on January 21, 1976 by former Blackthorn RFC players along with some enthusiastic novices to the game.  The club’s name is derived from Latin “Hibernia”, which the Romans called the wild and unconquerable island now known as Ireland. The original club logo was adopted from the Ancient Order of Hibernians, but was later changed in the 1977/78 season to the crest of the Province of Connaught, Ireland.  This Province of Ireland, as it turns out, is the homeland to the ancestors of most of the Club’s Founding Fathers.  The team’s colors are Black and White with Royal Blue trim.

The Men’s Side has been, throughout its history, a second division team in the Eastern Pennsylvania Rugby Union. It won the EPRU Second Division in 1987 and 1991. In 1992 it was the wild-card team in the ERU 2nd Division Championship. The club will be moving to Division 3 as of Fall 2014.
