About Us

Welcome to The West Cork Jesters Mixed Abilities, a pioneering non-profit organization dedicated to promoting inclusivity and empowerment through mixed-abilities sports. Founded in 2018 by Nobby Dunne, we provide exceptional opportunities for individuals with disabilities to participate in full-contact rugby and other team sports.

Our teams play alongside experienced players, creating an inclusive environment where everyone can participate, regardless of their disability. We have witnessed the transformative power of team sports, fostering friendships, and a sense of belonging for our participants.

In 2022, we participated in the IMART Mixed Abilities Rugby World Cup, a landmark event that showcased our commitment to inclusivity. Building on our success, we formed the Jesters Ladies team and ventured into Mixed Abilities Boxing, aiming to establish the first-ever mixed abilities boxing squad in Ireland.

We are proud recipients of Cork Sports Partnership awards and grateful for the support from our community and sponsors. Together, we are redefining limits, creating a vibrant community where everyone is valued and supported.

Join us as we continue to break barriers, celebrate abilities, and build a more inclusive world through the power of team sports.
