Four Buccaneers players have been named in Ireland squads for the forthcoming RBS Six Nations championships. Robbie Henshaw is, of course, already a key component of Joe Schimdt’s senior squad, while a trio of even younger Buccs - Rory Moloney, Stephen McVeigh, and Cian Romaine - have been included in the Ireland u20 squad by coach Nigel Carolan. Their first outing is an away game against Italy on February 6, and they tackle champions France in an Electric Ireland fixture at Dubarry Park, Athlone on Friday February 13.

But the attraction of a Saturday night game and the box office attraction of last year’s All Ireland champions is expected to swell the attendance in McHale Park.
Just like last year Mayo will square off against NUIG in the home final of the FBD League on a Friday night in McHale Park. The prize for the winners, a trip to New York in October to take on the exiles in the away final, should be enough motivation for any amateur player, but both sides have bigger fish to fry in the coming days and weeks, which will be a distraction this evening.
