Barbarians New Venue Officially Opened 10th Sept 2007
Stephen Rodgers and Kenny Beggs (pictured below) met for a couple of friendly matches to officially open Barbarians' new venue.

The club has had free use of Dunmurry Presbyterian Church Halls for four years, thanks to Barry Spence. To continue there, however, we would need to pay hourly fees and organise our own insurance, which we could not afford, so we have had to look elsewhere.

Fortunately, Stephen Rodgers came to the rescue and offered the Halls at King's Way Church, where he is a Pastor. The Church is in Dunmurry Main Street, just down the road from the old premises. Parking is available on roadside or in a car park round the corner on Glenburn Road.
