Highlights of Reaching For Glory Premiere

There was no red carpet but plenty of stars at the world premiere of “Reaching For Glory: Inside Irish Rugby 2007” in Clohessy’s Bar on Tuesday night. The Supporters Club event was a huge success.

The latest Supporters Club event was a huge success as a few hundred members and their guests attended the most exclusive premiere in Irish Rugby this season.

Reaching For Glory: Inside Irish Rugby” – an inside look at life in the Ireland rugby team, which will air on RTE later this month – was premiered to members in Clohessy’s Bar in Limerick on Tuesday night.

It was a unique chance to see inside the Irish dressing room and hear just what Eddie said to the team before the historic game against England. We also go to see the pain of the loss to France and just how these players work, and how they find time to relax when in camp.

Lynsey and Eddie

The screening was followed by a question and answer session with Ireland Coach Eddie O’Sullivan.

Also in attendance was attended by the entire Irish coaching staff – including assistant coach Niall O’Donovan and the legendary Rala, Munster and Ireland flanker Alan Quinlan and some celebrity guests such as Pat Shortt and Grainne Seoige.

Memebers were also able to meet and chat with Munster and Irish Legend Peter Clohessy – who was kind enough to host the event – and former Ireland Manager Brian O’Brien.

For those of you who missed out or could not attend we have a videocast of the evening and the Q&A session with Eddie as well as some clips from the documentary and pictures from the night (which ended late for some).

My thanks to everyone who came to the event, in particular those who travelled long distances from Belfast, Wicklow and London to name a few. Thanks to Aisling and Lynsey for the pictures.

Don’t forget to tune in to RTE on May 28th at 9:30 p.m. to see the documentary.
