Lucky Leinster hit the jackpot

Vincent Bradley (National Lottery Regional Sales Manager) recently presented the National Lottery plaque to Leinster Branch President Kevin Fitzpatrick outside the new gym facilities at Donnybrook before the Leinster v London Wasps friendly.

The Stadium has received funding for Sports Capital Projects supported by the National Lottery towards gym facilities, floodlighting and pitch development.

Leinster Rugby acknowledge and very much appreciate this show of support towards a number of Sports Capital Development Projects in the stadium at Donnybrook over recent years.

The new gym facility alone has enabled us to create a Centre of Excellence in Donnybrook supporting all our Age Grade Representative sides from U17 to U21 levels in addition to emerging talented Schools and Youth players who come from all communities across Leinster.

This summer alone over 150 players have participated in Development Programmes at U17 to U21 level.

The programmes also cover the nutritional needs of the individual as well as supporting a healthy lifestyle including educational needs.
