Limerick’s Greg O’Shea called up to Ireland 7’s Squad for Monaco

IRFU Director of Sevens and Women’s Rugby, Anthony Eddy, has made one injury-enforced change to his Ireland Men’s Sevens squad with Limerick’s and Shannon RFC’s Greg O’Shea travel with the squad instead of the injured Gavin Mullin.

Ireland will be in action this weekend for the World Rugby Sevens Repechage in Monaco

The tournament will see the return of the rugby sevens season as the Irish mens team will be one of ten men’s teams gunning for the final place at this summer’s Tokyo Olympic Games. This is also O’Shea’s first time traveling with an Irish sevens squad since playing in Los Angeles last August.
