Conor O’Tighearnaigh

2nd Apr 2003 2.01m/109kg Blindside Flanker

Second row Conor made his Leinster Rugby senior debut in the BKT United Rugby Championship game against the Vodacom Bulls in Loftus Versfeld Stadium in April 2023. It capped a remarkable few weeks for the young man, having also starred for Richie Murphy’s Ireland U-20s on their way to the Grand Slam.

It was his second U-20s Grand Slam having also played in 2022.

He started his rugby journey with Bective Rangers FC minis before moving to Old Belvedere RFC and then attending St. Michael’s College where he went to school.

Interestingly, in his first year with the Leinster U-18s Schools he didn’t make the final panel for the interprovincial competition, while his second year was cancelled due to Covid-19. However, he played in all three interprovincial games with the Leinster U-20s.
