Welcome to Down The Laighin, the Leinster and IRFU fan site. The site focuses on rugby news in general, with a strong focus on Leinster and Irish rugby news.

We will be keeping you all up to date on news and opinion from the main competitions including the RaboDirect Pro 12, Heineken Cup, and of course the Six Nations, along with other club and international friendlies.

The site was set up as a way for us to share our opinions with a wider audience and, trust me, we are very opinionated. We felt that all our witty and insightful rugby chat was being missed out on by the wider public and this is the perfect medium to share it.

The website was set up and run by a few good friends, all with a strong interest in Leinster Rugby and rugby in general.
