Ireland Under-19 Squad Is Announced

Ireland Under-19 Squad Is Announced

The Ireland Under-19 management have confirmed their squad to play their French counterparts twice at Garryowen FC in Limerick on Wednesday, March 30 and Sunday, April 3.

The Ireland U-19 side (sponsored by PwC) is coached by Kieran Campbell (head coach) and Hugh Hogan (assistant coach). They will be managed by Barney McGonigle.
The selected squad includes scrum half Niall Saunders, who was a late call-up to the Ireland U-20s recently and won his first Ireland U-20 cap off the bench against Italy.

James McKeown, who helped Belvedere College to Leinster Schools Senior Cup success last week, scoring two tries in the final, is joined in the squad by school-mate Tom De Jongh. Dylan Murphy, who was on the Roscrea side that lost to Belvedere, also features.
