The Academy department includes manager Ian Sherwin, Elite Development officers Ray Egan and Ken O'Connell, and Strength and Conditioning coaches Feargal O'Callaghan and Paudie Roche. This year the academy will now also benefit from two appointed physiotherapists on a part-time basis, Brian Fox in Cork and Damien Mordan in Limerick.
The Munster Rugby academy is heavily reliant on the significant funding received from the Munster Rugby Supporters Club and with same they are able to cater for the academy players needs, and implement a fully resourced academy programme each season.
