Leinster exiles, where are they.

Postby blockhead » October 28th, 2015, 11:10 am

I'd love to compile a list of Leinster (ex-Leinster or born in Leinster) players who are currently plying their trade for other clubs. Purely for the purpose of keeping an eye out for them and tracking their progress throughout the season. Not looking for the likes of Nathan White or Quinn Roux who came here from abroad as first teamers and then left.
I think I have all of the Munster contingent; (9)
Copeland, Keatley,Coghlan, Jones, Darcy,Conway, Monahan, Phelan, Oliver
and the Connacht contingent; (11)
Eoghan Masterson,Danny Qualter,Jason Harris-Wright,Ben Marshall,John Cooney,Jack Carty,Craig Ronaldson,Robbie Henshaw,Dave McSharry,Fionn Carr,Matt Healy

Forgive me if some of that is wrong, feel free to correct.

Anyone have a list of other Leinster guys playing abroad?

You forgot Denis Hurley, from Kells

Also, there is a similar thread on page one of the General Rugby section that has a similar purpose and is currently a decade (!) old

I know but there is no current list on that and I've asked for this before. Maybe someone like Xanthipe might have a list in her head that she could post here.
Thanks for Hurley btw, how did I miss him.

Extracting the urine a little with the Athlone trio of Qualter, Henshaw and Carthy.

I think they are all Marist Athlone and Buccaneers. Both of which are Connacht clubs/schools.

Athlone is on both sides of the Shannon and therefore in both provinces. Counties Westmeath and Roscommon.

They have it hard enough down there with the fewest rugby clubs in the country without us trying to claim some of them.

According to Wikipedia "Most of the town lies on the east bank of the river; however, by the terms of the Local Government Act of 1898, six townlands on the west bank of the Shannon were deemed to be part of the town and, therefore, part of County Westmeath."

So lets consider them one of ours.

Yes, lets take all we can get. I believe that during the Celtic tiger some of the estates in Connacht and Munster were deemed close enough to Dublin to be considered part of Leinster. Lets have them too! :D

Ah Jaysus lads. Have yiz not got enough?

I'd say you have a David Nucifora dartboard in your houses.

:lol:

Part of the actual town is on the west bank. The address is Athlone County Roscommon. I used to stay there with friends a lot more recently than 1898.

Ulster have:

Ruaridh (?) Murphy - doesn't get much of a look-in..
Alan O'Connor - looked good when fit last year (rumour of long-running injury problems though..)
Dave Shanahan - bench so far this season, looks decent in patches, headless in other patches

and in the academy:
Craig Trenier - although his mum is from Ulster, so a 50/50 :)
Nick Timoney

As a matter of Interest (as I'm a Dubliner meself) does anybody know how many of the 9 Leinster guys at Munster are actually from Dublin?

The bit about me having friends or staying somewhere since 1898?

Incidentally. There are only 2 people alive who were born in the 1800s. Both in 1899. one in The US and one in Italy. :)

Of the 10 (if you include Hurley) 7 are from Dublin. Copeland is from Wexford, Phelan is from Kildare and Hurley was born in West Cork

I don't have a list of every player ever born in Leinster unfortunately - the most extreme I'd be would be to have a list of anyone who ever player for Leinster or attended the academy.

Jaysus X, you're a mind of Leinster information. I'd say you need to get out more but I know that isn't true. Maybe you need to stay in more :D

Anyway thanks for this. Only need to get 8 more guys down there for the full team.

Altogether now "We all dream of a Dublin, Munster team........" :wink:

Think we can safely say Jordan Coghlan the first Munster player to have made a choice between professional rugby and cricket
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.
