Iain is taking a gap year to travel with the Pride before going to Trinity College, Dublin to study Business, Economics and Social Studies. Iain has been a rugby fanatic all his life, playing for his school, St Gerard’s and for Greystones RFC from U16s to U20s, currently as a typically cheeky no. 9.

Proud achievement

Winning the Leinster U17 cup with Greystones and coaching the Greystones Seagulls Special Needs side over the course of the season has been a rugby highlight.

Iain’s goal

“I look forward to working with the Pride, promoting rugby and its values with communities across Africa. I will really enjoy meeting people throughout the project from all over the continent.”
