Video | Munster U19 Boys Interpro Preparations

Munster U19 Boys Head Coach Brendan O'Connor

It has been a busy summer across the province with the Munster age-grade representative squads preparing for their respective Interprovincial campaigns.

The Interpro series for Munster’s U19 Boys, U18 Boys Schools, U18 Boys Clubs and U18 Girls squads all kick off in August.

This month, all squads participated in a residential camp at the University of Limerick which involved the use of the facilities in the High Performance Centre which included pitch sessions and gym work in addition to workshops around nutrition and sports psychology.

We caught up with Munster U19 Boys head coach Brendan O’Connor who described what the players have been working on during the initial weeks of training.

We also spoke with CBC’s Michael Foy who chats about the experience of training with the U19 Boys squad.

Hear from O’Connor and Foy below.
