There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
The programme was the brain child of Paddy Fenton from Rugbaì Chorca Dhuibhne and Eoin Hogan from the IRFU. It was a big success in its inaugural year and it is hoped that the scheme will be expanded next year.
This unique course allowed students to attend Irish classes during the day and in the evening to attend rugby training sessions with Munster Community Rugby Officer Shane Ó Ruairc.
