Munster Rugby CEO Garrett Fitzgerald, Head Coach Rob Penney and UL's Director of Sport and Recreation David Mahedy held a press conference in UL to talk about the up and coming one training centre for Munster Rugby.
Joining Ireland’s heroes in the IRUPA Hall of Fame was Munster legend, John Hayes who was presented his award by Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll.
Recently retired Mick O’Driscoll was awarded the inaugural IRUPA Hibernia College Medal for Excellence, which rewards on field effort combined with off field commitment to the game.
Nominees were voted by their peers but were also judged on their contribution to the sport through community involvement, education, work and charitable initiatives.
