Wilson’s Hospital School is one of Ireland’s longest established Rugby Schools. Our earliest recorded team captain dates back to 1840.
The school competes in Section A of the Leinster Branch School’s competitions. It normally fields teams at U14, U15, U16 & U18 age groups.
The 2009/2010 season was a very successful one for the school. The Senior Cup team played in two finals – namely the Leinster Section ‘A’ Senior League and the McMullan Cup. The Junior Cup team won the Junior Section ‘A’ League.
The school has been well represented on the Leinster Section ‘A’ interprovencial teams over the years. In 2009/2010 Ian and Barry were selected to play for the Leinster ‘A’ team.
Congratulations to all the players involved in rugby in the school over the years and a big thank you to the various coaches at all levels.
