Leinster School of Excellence Manager Tom McKeown is eagerly anticipating SOE 2016 “In Leinster Rugby, we pride ourselves on being innovative and constantly look for new ways to improve. This has been the driver of all successes the province has enjoyed in the last number of years.  
As Manager of the Bank of Ireland Leinster School of Excellence for the third year, I have seen significant growth in our programme. In 2014 we had 540 enter the three week programme, however, this exploded again last year to over 950 over a four week block”.  
“At The King’s Hospital School, we have the ideal setting to present such an in depth rugby experience. Every staff member (coach or otherwise) loves being involved in such a dynamic environment where the player’s experience is so paramount. We are confident each player leaves us with an improved skill set and has had a really enjoyable week off pitch too. It’s key to find the balance between improving players and creating an environment they enjoy socially too. We think we’ve cracked it and hope to see more talented, eager boys & girls through Leinster School of Excellence in 2016!”
