Talking Lions with Geech & Lenihan

Over 200 rugby fans were treated to an inside view of the 2009 Lions tour at “An Evening with Ian McGeechan” in Thomond Park Stadium on October 16th last.

Coinciding with the publication of McGeechan’s autobiography “Lion Man,” the event was hosted by former Munster, Ireland and Lions great, the former Lions Manager Donal Lenihan.

The banter between two of rugby’s greats was a real treat for the riveted audience, with the questions from the floor allowing informed and interesting discussion.

A gala raffle was also held on the night, with match tickets for Munster’s Heineken Cup Round 2 game against Benetton Treviso on offer as well a signed Munster Rugby ball and the top prize of a Lions jersey signed by Ian McGeechan.

The formalities concluded with Ian meeting the fans and signing copies of his autobiography. 

The ten Munster Rugby prizewinners attending the event included: Eamonn Flynn (Waterford); Kevin Humphreys (Cork); Angela Buckley (Limerick); Michael McMahon (Cork); Martin Fadden (Limerick); Glenn Copley (Limerick); Paul Sheehan (Cork); Alan O’Sullivan (Cork); Rob McNamara (Clare); Orla Dineen (Cork).
