The Pig N’ Porter festival this year will run a 6-a-side Mixed Hockey Tournament – in association with Alive Outside and the IHA – alongside the traditional Mixed Tag Rugby Festival at Catholic Institute’s grounds in Limerick on Saturday, July 17.

The cost for the weekend per hockey team is €200 which includes free entry to the entirety of the Pig N’ Porter Festival. The event begins with a welcome party in Clohessy’s bar on Friday, July 16. Saturday’s sporting activities are augmented by a hog-roast barbecue, live music from Whitewater Band and a fire show from Passe Partout Circus before a disco ensues.

Sunday allows participants free admission to the All-Ireland Pig-on-a-spit bbq competition with some delicious free food as well as a farmer’s market, a tag rugby expo and music all day.

The hockey tournament is a one-day event, held on Saturday, July 17 with 12 teams taking part. Each team must have three females and three males on pitch at all times out of a squad of ten players. Matches are 20 minutes in length and the tournament runs from 1pm to 5pm.
