Charity Rugby in Limerick on Sunday

A new series of high performance charity rugby clinics have been announced for locations in Munster and Leinster through April, giving young players a fantastic rugby development experience to avail of around the end of their club and school rugby seasons.

Launched by partners and PSA Academies, the events will see international-level coaches together with some special international guests deliver an innovative rugby programme that includes core skills assessment, game management coaching and drills, decision making and teamwork development.

Each clinic will offer a taster experience for the 10 to 18 year old girl and boys attending, giving them a real insight into the full Academy Programme that the organisers will offer in Ireland at Roscrea Rugby Academy between 1st and 6th July and Kilkenny Rugby Academy Between 12th and 17th August, and in France at the Tignes Rugby Academy between the 7th and 28th July.

The clinics will directly benefit charity partners UNICEF Ireland, who have a well-established rugby footprint in Ireland through the involvement of former Munster and Irish playing legend Donnacha O’Callaghan, who has worked as a Goodwill Ambassador for the charity for a number of years.

With each booking seeing €10 donated to the charity plus further fundraising activities planned for the days themselves, it is hoped that the clinics can prove a very successful grassroots community fundraising initiative for the charity.

Speaking on the announcement of the events, ex-Munster player and Academies Head Coach Johne Murphy said “We’re really looking forward to introducing young players across Munster and Leinster to our fantastic high performance rugby programme via these charity rugby clinics.”

“Being able to support UNICEF Ireland’s important charity work at the same time is really important for our team and we’re looking forward to getting great support from the Irish rugby public across all three locations.”
