Welcome to the home of the Ignatius Rugby Football Club (IRFC).
Our club was co-founded in 2001 by Thomas “Tank” O’Brien and Martin
Perry and functions as a non-school sponsored club sport at Saint Ignatius College
Prep in Chicago. From the teams’ inception, we have attained great success
and have quickly risen to the top of the Illinois Youth Rugby Association (IYRA)
High School Boys Tier I ranks.
