Munster players made visits to schools across the province in recent weeks, as Tommy O'Donnell and Jaco Taute met with children at Adare National School, Conor Oliver and David Johnston went to Newport Boys Primary School, while Bill Johnston and Ciarán Parker paid a visit to St Paul's National School.

O'Donnell and Taute visited Adare National School in Limerick to join in with classwork and brush up on their art skills before joining the children in the playground.

Oliver and David Johnston took part in a series of activities with the children of Newport Boys Primary School in Tipperary, as well as spending some time with the school's principal, Marie Cremin.

Parker and Bill Johnston dropped into St Paul's National School in Limerick for a Q&A session in the school gym, which both players and children thoroughly enjoyed.

These visits are an example of Munster Rugby's continuing commitment to meeting with schools in the community and providing inspiration for young people all over the province.
