Conroy helps Ireland secure Olympic Games place

Tullamore’s Jordan Conroy grabbed two tries to help Ireland Men’s Sevens secure a place at the Olympic Games.

Conroy’s tries helped Ireland turn the final of the Olympic Repechage in their favour and ultimately secure a fantastic 28-17 victory over France this evening.


Anthony Eddy‘s side created history on a magical evening for Irish Rugby as they secured the 12th and final place in the Men’s Sevens competition in Tokyo.

The Ireland Men’s Sevens are now set to become the first Irish Rugby team to compete at the Olympics, in what will be the second staging of the Sevens competition following its introduction in Rio 2016.

The Olympic Men’s Rugby Sevens competition will take place from 26-28 July, with all the action taking place at Tokyo Stadium, which hosted the opening match of Rugby World Cup 2019.
