A squad of 22 players and 22 adults, including coaches and minders, will depart on Friday, 22nd April to take part in the world-renowned London Irish International Minis & U12 Rugby Festival which is taking place in London on Sunday, 24th April.

Partner of HOMS Assist Cork Office, John Ringrose commented:


“We are thrilled to support Dolphin U12s on their upcoming trip to London. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the young players, who will get to wear the ‘HOMS Assist’ jerseys as they march out onto the pitch and play in one of the biggest Rugby Festivals in Europe. We wish them all the best from the HOMS Assist team and we hope they enjoy the weekend.”


This is the 39th time that London Irish Amateur RFC has hosted the event, returning after a two year hiatus due to Covid-19.


The Cork entourage will be led by Head Coach Paddy Murphy who will be assisted by members of the coaching staff Erik Bruhn, Tony Taylor, Kieran McCarthy, John O’Mahony and John Ringrose.
