PSA Academies are delighted to announce that Munster & Irish legend Denis Leamy will be joining our coaching team for the PSA Rugby Academy Limerick, running from Sunday 14 July to Friday 19 July.
Denis will join Johan Taylor and Ben Swindlehurst as head coaches for our high performance rugby programme at our inaugural Munster-based Academy in Limerick.
With players from U11 to U17 representing 16 Munster clubs plus clubs from the US, France, Spain and Singapore, the Academy is shaping up to be a fantastic showcase of young rugby talent hosted at the Villiers School venue.
Speaking on the announcement of his involvement, Denis said “I’m excited to be joining Johan, Ben and all the PSA Academies team for the PSA Rugby Academy Limerick. From the minute my ex-Munster teammate Johne Murphy approached me about my availability and chatted through the PSA Academies programme and philosophy, I was keen to be involved and I’m really looking forward to working with some of the best young talent from across Munster, plus our international players, to help assess, develop and support them in taking a big step towards maximising their potential this July.”
