Leinster and Ireland star Garry Ringrose will join forces with PwC to further enhance its support and commitment to young Irish talent.

Developing young talent is a strategic imperative for PwC Ireland, whether through its Graduate and Intern Programmes or their corporate sponsorships, PwC has a clear ambition to nurture the aspirations of our future leaders, in business and in sport.

PwC is proud sponsor of the Ireland U20 rugby team who get their Six Nations campaign underway this Friday night with an away game against France. PwC also sponsors the U19 and U18 teams and the IRFU’s Elite Player Pathway Programme.

To further strengthen its longstanding relationship with Irish Rugby and enhance its U20 sponsorship, PwC is excited to announce this partnership with Garry Ringrose.

Ringrose is a product of that Elite Pathway Programme. He made his debut for the Ireland U20s against Scotland at the 2014 Six Nations Championship and later that same year, was shortlisted for World Rugby Junior Player of the Year at the IRB Junior World Championship.

To launch the partnership, Ringrose was at PwC’s head office in Dublin today where he spoke to the media.

Speaking at the announcement, Feargal O'Rourke, Managing Partner, PwC Ireland, said: “We are delighted that Garry has come on board to work together with us.  His knowledge and insight will bring our 2018 Irish Rugby campaign to another level. As a business, it is one of our core Values to ‘make a difference’, and Garry epitomises this. He has made the step up from being an underage star to become a household name around the country for his efforts on the rugby pitch. We are planning an exciting schedule of events with Garry for our clients, our people and their families to enjoy.”

“We look forward to working with Garry in the coming months and wish him all the best as he recovers from injury. Hopefully, we’ll see him back in the blue of Leinster and the green of Ireland before too long.”

“Garry was a star at U20 level and we are confident we’ll see new stars emerging during this season’s U20 Six Nations. We’d like to wish Noel McNamara and his squad the very best as they get their campaign underway this weekend.”
