Check out some photos from the Leo the Lion’s visit to Life Style Sports in the Square Shopping Centre and see what he had to say about the day.

Leo the Lion paid a visit to Life Style Sports in the Square Shopping Centre, Tallaght, this week, and he brought the PRO12 and British & Irish Cup trophies with him. Leo was visiting Life Style Sports ahead of Leinster’s match against Ulster in Tallaght Stadium on 30 August

Hundreds of supporters came in to Life Style Sports to get a photo with Leo and the trophies. Leinster’s main lion also took a stroll around the shopping centre to meet supporters and tell them about the big match in Tallaght at the end of the month.

Speaking at the event, Leo said how pleased he was to see so many supporters of all ages coming in to meet him in the Square Shopping Centre.

“It was a great day,” Leo told leinsterrugby.ie. 

“I got to meet loads of supporters and, the ever-thoughful lion that I am, I even picked up the new jersey for Leona as well – she’ll be delighted.

“I’m really looking forward to coming back on 30 August for the match against Ulster in Tallaght Stadium, and I’d really like to thank Life Style Sports for having us. Damien, the store manager, and all the staff were really helpful. I understand it can be difficult to accommodate a lion in your store, but they did a wonderful job.”
