Craig Gilroy had a pretty spectacular debut for the Irish Rugby Team yesterday. He played brilliantly, scored a fantastic try and electrified the crowd every time he got the ball.

He’s also from Bangor !!!

Craig went to Methody College in Belfast, he has played GAA football for St Pauls in Holywood and Soccer for Bangor Swifts as well as Rugby.

Although he is far from the first Rugby international who cut his teeth on a GAA pitch, Down GAA, you’ve missed a trick there.

Well done to Craig and I hope he’s on the pitch for the six nations in the new year.
