Leinster Rugby Awards Ball,

THE countdown is on for the annual Leinster Rugby Awards Ball, which takes place at the Mansion House in Dublin this weekend.

The black-tie event on April 21 will see the top players, their partners and their fans coming together to celebrate the best in provincial, club and individual player achievements.

The evening will kick off with a drinks reception followed by a three-course meal and an awards ceremony hosted by Barry Murphy of Apres Match fame. Then the party will be cranked up when 90s-inspired band Smash Hits take to the stage.

An ideal opportunity for Leinster fans to rub shoulders with their favourite players, it also lets the team members show their appreciation for those who have supported them throughout the year.

Tickets for the event are €89 per person from ticketmaster.ie.
