Leavy big winner at Leinster awards
Dan Leavy had plenty to celebrate at Leinster Rugby's awards this week as the Ireland openside scooped both the fans' and players' Player of the Year awards.
The 23-year-old, who has been in flying form despite being injured early in the campaign, played a key role in Ireland's Grand Slam and the province's march to the Champions Cup final and Guinness PRO14 play-offs.
James Ryan, another former St Michael's student, was crowned Young Player of the Year after a remarkable season.
The 21-year-old had plenty of competition after a season where a number of young guns made their mark, but the Ireland lock has been sensational and is yet to lose a senior game since making his international debut in June last year.
Former Ireland international Paul McNaughton was inducted into the Leinster Hall of Fame, while the Irish Independent Try of the Year award went to Jordan Larmour for his effort against Munster at Thomond Park.
Elsewhere, Blackrock College scooped the School of the Year gong after triumphing in the Leinster Junior and Senior Cups.
Meanwhile, Mullingar RFC picked up the Contribution to Leinster Rugby award.
