The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Camps were launched this week with three members of Leo Cullen's team hosting a pop-up training session for the children of St Mary's School, Ranelagh.

These camps, which will take place in locations all across the province, offer kids the chance to learn to play the Leinster way in a fun and safe environment.

Jamie Heaslip, Jack McGrath and Hayden Triggs were on hand to put the children through their paces. The camps are open to boys and girls aged 6-12 and are run by fully accredited IRFU coaches.

With an extended 27 venues on offer throughout the province in July and August there is plenty of choice for budding young players. The first camps get underway in Wexford Wanderers, Donnybrook, Terenure College and Balbriggan on Monday, July 4 and run from 9.30-1.30, Monday to Friday.

Skills

As well as learning new skills, meeting Leinster players, making new friends and having lots of fun, each child will receive a Canterbury pack including a training T-shirt, a thrillseeker rugby ball and Leinster draw-string bag. They will also get one free junior ticket to a selected Leinster game.

An early bird rate of €75 is available for children who enrol before June 3. After this date, the cost of attending the camp will be €90 per child. A second sibling can book a place on a camp for €80. You can book a second camp for your child for just €60 (no kit included).

Elma Beirne, domestic marketing executive, said: "We're thrilled to have Bank of Ireland on board as the title sponsor of our camps. With the camps now a regular sell out we have added five new venues bringing the total to 27."
