IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne has issued a statement following confirmation of Ronan O'Gara's decision to retire from playing professional rugby.
Teams from Ireland, England, France, Italy, Scotland and Wales competed at the Festival, with the Ireland Under-18 Schools side posting their first win of the Festival on Tuesday when they edged out Italy 17-15 at Cork Institute of Technology.
Congratulations to the England and Wales squads who both won their three games, while Scotland, Italy and France also put in some very good performances.
The matches were held at Temple Hill, the Mardyke, Cork IT and Musgrave Park, with the Festival organisers, venue officials and volunteers doing a fine job. Well done to all involved.
