Rugby fans in Clare will hear first hand what life is like as a professional rugby player when Heineken Cup Champions Munster host one of their annual breakfast briefings in Ennis. The annual briefing event, hosted in different counties each year, will be held in the Temple Gate Hotel, Ennis on Friday 17th November. The purpose of the breakfast briefings is to give supporters a view behind the scenes of running a professional rugby team. Supporters will also have the opportunity to take part in an open discussion with team management and players on all aspects of the professional game. The breakfast briefing is organised in association with Ennis Chamber of Commerce and all proceeds from the morning will be donated to Cahercalla Hospice Fund.
The breakfast briefings include a presentation on Running a Professional Rugby Team by the Munster Rugby CEO followed by a question and answer forum with Munster s Director of Rugby, Declan Kidney and several senior players.
Garrett Fitzgerald, CEO of Munster Rugby explained we are looking forward to hosting this event in Clare due to the phenomenal growth and level of interest in the game throughout the county. Clare has been a major contributor of players to Munster Rugby at all levels, including the province s most capped player Anthony Foley. Clare is also a major growth centre for the game so it is important that we visit such areas to let them know of our future plans. The last season was a huge success for us and the platform for further growth and success, on and off the field.
The Munster Rugby breakfast briefing takes place in the Temple Gate Hotel, Ennis on Friday 17th November from 8am to 9.30am. Tickets are available from Ennis Chamber of Commerce on 065 6842988. There are limited numbers available and admission is by pre paid ticket only.
