The South Side Irish was founded by Gene Moriarty in 1975 in the Beverly neighborhood along with the Kennelly Brothers 9 Art, Joe and Kevin. Our club is a social and athletic organization which has grown from the initial 15 players to a club with over 400 past and current members. We are a member of the Chicago Area Rugby Football Union and the Midwest Union. We have had many highs and lows over the years with a second place finish in Division 2 Nationals in 2002, fifth place in Division 2 Nationals in 2004 and fifth place in Division 1 National Championships in 2006. We are currently in Division 2 in the Midwest Union.
