Byrne is headed for Connacht!

Adam Byrne will be moving to Connacht Rugby at the end of the season. Adam will be leaving Leinster Rugby, a club where he has spent his whole career to date.

Adam burst onto the scene at Leinster, making his first senior appearance at the age of 18, the youngest Leinsterman ever to do so. He has amassed 64 appearances for Leinster, touching down 24 times. Further, Adam received the honour of playing for Ireland in the 2017 November internationals vs Argentina.

Connacht are getting a real X factor winger who is hungry to achieve great things with his new club.

Chris Best, head of FSM, said “Adam is only 27 and has his best years ahead of him. This move is a win win for all involved, Adam is hungry to play and win, Connacht are getting a top class winger and Adam is still able to achieve further Ireland honours by staying in the country”

Finally Adam said ” I have been with Leinster my whole career and want to thank them for everything they have done. However, I am excited by this new challenge with Connacht, they have a great squad and I hope to help them achieve their goals next season!
