McLoughlin Inducted Into Rugby Writers Hall Of Fame

Former Munster man and Ireland international, Gerry ‘Ginger’ McLoughlin, was last night inducted into the Rugby Writers Hall of Fame at the Guinness Rugby Writers of Ireland Awards, hosted at the Aviva Stadium.

Ginger played his club rugby with Shannon RFC and was a key part of Munster’s victory over the All Blacks in 1978.

He famously scored a try for Ireland at Twickenham in 1982, carrying half the English pack over the line.

The win was instrumental in Ireland winning the Triple Crown for the first time since 1949.

Ginger also toured New Zealand with the 1983 British & Irish Lions squad.
