    6. 6. Leinster Rugby The Leinster Branch was inaugurated at a meeting on the 31st of October, 1879. The meeting was held at Lawrence’s premises 63 Grafton Street and was largely attended. The clubs represented at the meeting were; Wanderers, Lansdowne, Arlington School, Dublin University, Dundalk, Phoenix F.C. and Stephen’s Hospital. F. Kennedy (Wanderers) was elected first Hon. Secretary of the Branch and C.B. Croker (Lansdowne) first Hon. Treasurer. The function of the Branch was to organise the game of rugby football in the province. Every year five representatives would be selected to join the IRFU Committee. They would be known was the “Leinster Five” and would pick the Leinster representative teams.
    7. 7. Munster Rugby Munster has a great tradition of competitiveness and empassioned displays against touring sides. The first touring side to play Munster were the famous &quot;Original&quot; All Blacks led by Dave Gallagher, who lined out against Munster in the Markets Field, Limerick in November, 1905. Munster were defeated that day 33-0. Throughout the years Munster were to record a number of near-misses and last minute defeats to the Springboks, Wallabies and the All Blacks. The first tangible result against a touring side was to come in 1958 when the Wallabies were held to a 3-3 draw in Thomond Park.
    8. 8.
