Irish rugby team stalwart Patrick ‘Rala’ O’Reilly to conduct site tours at SportTech 2016

SVG Europe is delighted to announce that Patrick ‘Rala’ O’Reilly – who has been baggage master to the Irish Senior Team for nearly 15 years – will conduct the site tours of the Aviva Stadium, Dublin, which form part of the SportTech summit programme next Wednesday (18 May).

A stalwart of Ireland’s rugby community for several decades, O’Reilly has toured every major rugby playing nation, including three world cups. In 2009 he was appointed baggage master for the British & Irish Lions, whilst he has been a member of Terenure College RFC since 1967.

O’Reilly recounted some of his many memorable stories from his distinguished career in the acclaimed 2013 book Rala: A Life in Rugby.
