Girvan Dempsey
Girvan Dempsey

An excellent reader of the game who impresses consistently in defence and attack, GIRVAN DEMPSEY has made the Ireland full-back spot his own over the past year.

Rejuvenated at Leinster since Michael Cheika’s arrival at the province, Dempsey played in all three of last November’s autumn internationals and was ever-present during Ireland’s Triple Crown-winning run in the 2007 Six Nations - he scored three tries against England and Italy (2).

Educated at Terenure College and the National College of Ireland, Dempsey won his first full cap as a replacement against Georgia in November 1998 and scored two tries. He became a first choice player in 2000 and played in all five of Ireland’s matches at the 2003 World Cup.

He reached a milestone when winning his 50th cap in the 2004 summer tour’s second Test against South Africa, and is currently the joint-fourth most-capped Irish player in history, with nine of his appearances as a winger between 1998 and 2005.

A former Ireland Under-21 and ’A’ cap, Dempsey’s senior career will probably be most remembered for his try in the left corner at Twickenham in 2004 which helped Ireland on their way to securing their first Triple Crown since 1985.
