Tipperary rugby fans were delighted to see local hero Denis Leamy picked on the Irish squad for the World Cup finals in New Zealand.

Cashel star Leamy was named in Declan Kidney’s thirty man squad on Monday and will travel down under as a key member of the back row brigade.

‘The Rock of Cashel’ has been one of Munster and Ireland’s top performers in recent years and will be expected to play a key role in the Pool games in New Zealand and hopefully beyond.
