Stephen Maher, School of Excellence Co-Ordinator: “I’ve been involved with the Leinster School of Excellence programme for almost ten years. Each year, the programme gets bigger and better and this year is no exception. With the Leinster senior coaches involved as guest speakers, it shows where this camp sits in the Leinster Development pathway. We’ve seen players such as Joey Carbery, Tadhg Furlong and Eimear Corri all attend and progress through to the senior ranks at provincial and international level.”
