Home | Why IRI


Here at the Irish Rugby Institute we are tremendously proud of our Irish rugby heritage and modern rugby culture. Driven by our passion for the game we believe we have created a unique, professional and exhilarating rugby experience that will

We believe that the values of rugby are the foundation of everything we do and stand for. We believe we have an obligation to spread and protect the central tenets of rugby culture and uphold them in all we do for future generations to carry forth. We have conceived of none better than those already set in place by World Rugby.

We play, teach and promote the game of rugby with:

INTEGRITY: Integrity is central to the fabric of the game and is generated through honesty and fair play.

PASSION: Rugby people have a passionate enthusiasm for the game. Rugby generates excitement, emotional attachment and a sense of belonging to the global rugby family.

SOLIDARITY: Rugby provides a unifying spirit that leads to life-‐long friendships, camaraderie, teamwork and loyalty, which transcends cultural, geographic, political and religious differences.

DISCIPLINE: Discipline is an integral part of the game both on and off the field and is reflected through adherence to the laws, the regulations and rugby’s core values.

RESPECT: Respect for team-‐mates, opponents, match officials and those involved in the game is paramount.

ENJOYMENT: Combining all of these values, we add some fun: if we’re not enjoying the game, we’re not playing the game.
