Ardee Rugby Club have announced that former Ireland, Munster and Leinster player Niall Ronan will be taking charge of the club’s U15 coaching over the next five weeks.
The flanker, who played over 100 times for Munster, was forced to retire from professional rugby in 2014 aged just 31, because of a persistent knee injury.
Now 35, Ronan is a Level 6 coach and is looking to share his vast experience with up-and-coming players.
Ronan took charge of his first session with the U15s on Tuesday night and will be holding a further nine more during his time with the local club.
The sessions take place twice weekly at Townparks and Ardee Rugby Club are welcoming any new players interested in joining the team to come and take part.
Training is held on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7pm, with those attending asked to be at the ground by 6:45pm.
