Former Irish international rugby player Reggie Corrigan has taken a case for unfair dismissal against the Leinster branch of the IRFU.

Mr. Corrigan, a native of Bray now living in Greystones, lost his job in 2012. He was told in April 2012 that his contract would not be renewed due to financial restraints, an Employment Appeals Tribunal heard last month.

The former Presentation College Bray pupil retired as a player in 2007 and was made scrum coach in 2009. In 2010 he took up the position of scrum coach development officer for the domestic game and a salary reduction of €20,000.

Frank Drumm for Mr. Corrigan told the tribunal that there was no fixed-term contract and his client did not receive an RP50.

Domestic rugby manager Philip Lawlor said that Leinster was bearing extra costs after funding from the IRFU.

'The crux of the issue was, we were well-manned ... and no longer had a need for his services,' said Mr. Lawlor.

'We were overcrowded. We had three people doing two people's jobs.'

He added that Mr. Corrigan was 'well-regarded by the rugby fraternity'. The case was adjourned to May 30.
