He won a Senior Cup medal with Blackrock College in 2022, scoring a try in the final against Gonzaga College. Later that same year he would line out with Leinster ‘A’ in a number of interprovincial games before making his Ireland U-20s debut in the 2023 Six Nations. He played in every game of the campaign.

Growing up he was also a talented soccer player with St. James AFC and Beechwood FC and he represented South Dublin in the renowned Kennedy Cup.

Before attending Blackrock College, he played minis rugby with Blackrock College RFC in Stradbrook and now lines out for Clontarf FC in the Energia All-Ireland League.

Hugh doesn’t need to go far to look for inspiration as his second cousin is former Leinster, Ireland and British & Irish Lions, Jack McGrath.
