The visit was a part Munster Rugby’s  Team Building exercise  and the amazing Munster Race

The squad had a chance to relax at Quality Youghal. They stayed in several of our holiday homes. Staff and guests alike were all thrilled by the visit and the team were also delighted with their stay.

The squad had a chance to use the facilities in the hotel and the Pool and Leisure Centre was a perfect spot for a relaxing swim and a bit of banter.

What actually was the Amazing Munster Race and what happened ! Well six groups of players were dropped off around Munster at different locations on Wednesday, they then had to  make their own way to Youghal – arriving last night.

Along the way the squad had to carry out a number of different tasks,  relying on the hospitality of local communities in return for some coaching tips, photographs and autographs.
