Welcome to the Club, Ronan Foley!

Blackheath Rugby is excited to announce the signing of back row player Ronan Foley, who is currently in the UK on a three month sabbatical. 

A former student at University College Dublin, Ronan was awarded the UCD Club Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season in 2017-2018, and captained UCD in the club’s pandemic-shortened 2020-2021 season. Ronan also represented Ireland at the 2018 Six Nations U20s Championship, has featured for Leinster ‘A’, and earned a cap with Leinster’s senior side in 2019.

James Shanahan, Head Coach, says “Ronan a very exciting player who was recommended by Chris Bell who played with him in the MLR. Ronan is a dynamic back rower who I look forward to working with. He’s over for a 3 month sabbatical before heading to Seattle for the new MLR season.”

We’re looking forward to seeing Ronan on the pitch, and he can’t wait to get started: “I’m really excited to have the opportunity to play with Blackheath and I can’t wait to get out there. I know Blackheath is a club steeped in history and it’s a real honour and privilege to pull on the jersey. I’m really looking forward to the season ahead and playing some exciting rugby for everyone to enjoy!”

Welcome to The Club, Ronan!
