IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne has issued a statement following confirmation of Ronan O'Gara's decision to retire from playing professional rugby.
With last night's Weather Warning in mind, all plans for keeping the teams up to speed with how proceedings were going had to be used to convey the unvavoidable sad news that the Leinster Tag Provincial Festival was again to be abandoned.
All team registrations due for refund following this calling off of the Festival will be processed on monday 18th August with a Refund Notice sent out via email.
We wish to thank all involved for their patience over the last two days for news to transpire.
Any news of further festivals this year will be announced here on www.irfutag.ie and via email to our mailing list.
