Bank of Ireland’s “Meet Your Rugby Heroes” competition launches in primary schools nationwide

Bank of Ireland is delighted to announce the launch of their “Meet Your Rugby Heroes” competition for primary school children to promote the bank’s sponsorship of provincial rugby in Ireland.

Up for grabs is the opportunity for one primary school in each province of Munster, Connacht and Leinster to win a celebrity visit to their school by members of their provincial rugby team, rugby goody bags for each member of the winning team and a framed provincial rugby jersey signed by the team.

To enter the competition members of an individual class must submit an original photograph that captures the meaning of “team spirit” and this does not have to be rugby-related. Two entries are allowed per school and the children must be aged between 7 and 12 years of age. The closing date for entries is Tuesday 17th June 2008 and entry forms and competition details have been posted to all primary schools nationwide. Full details and entry forms are also available at

Bank of Ireland’s association with Irish rugby spans a decade of support and currently includes title sponsorship of Leinster, Ulster and Connacht provincial teams. The Bank is also official bank to Munster RFU.
