Stephen Maher, Leinster School of Excellence Manager, added:

We’re delighted with the uptake on our Bank of Ireland Leinster School of Excellence programme and how it has been received in general. Weeks 1, 2 and 4 are now sold out, even with our increased capacity.

“It’s really going to be a fantastic experience for those attending both on and off field. We are also thrilled that some of the coaches and management from the Leinster Senior set up have taken the time to come and share some of the experiences with the boys and girls attending the camps.”
