Ireland U-18 Men’s Rugby squad for Six Nations Festival in Parma

Ireland U-18 Men’s Rugby Squad Announced for Six Nations Men’s U18 Festival in Parma

This dynamic 26-man lineup boasts a blend of seasoned players and emerging talents, ready to leave their mark on the international stage. Among the squad are two familiar faces from last year’s tournament in Dublin: Charlie Molony and Luke McLaughlin, the younger sibling of Ireland U20 player Hugo McLaughlin.

Earning their place in the squad are several standout players who recently clinched Schools Cup medals, including the likes of Brian O’Flaherty, Conor O’Shaughnessy, Donnacha McGuire, and Michael Walsh from Blackrock College, alongside James O’Leary from Pres. Cork, and RBAI’s Blake McClean and Josh Gibson. Additionally, Noah Byrne, who was a standout performancer for Dublin minor footballers last season and with Gonzaga this season, adds further depth to the team’s talent pool.

The squad is gearing up for an intense fixture list, with their campaign commencing against France on March 30th, followed by clashes against host nation Italy on April 3rd, before concluding their tournament journey against Portugal on April 7th. Fans worldwide can catch every moment of action as all matches will be live-streamed by Six Nations and accessible via IrishRugby.ie and YouTube.

Wayne Mitchell, National Talent Squad & Talent ID Manager, shared his enthusiasm for the tournament, emphasising its role in providing young players with invaluable exposure to elite-level competition.
