Ian Nagle


From Buttevant, Co Cork, Ian Nagle has come through the Munster Rugby Academy and featured in Munster's pre-season games in 2009, scoring a try on his debut and later made his senior bow against Newport Gwent Dragons.

After his second year in the Academy, he secured a development contract at the start of the 2010/11 season moving on to a senior contract the following year.

In November 2010 Nagle was awarded the Man of the Match award when Munster defeated the touring Australians at Thomond Park and then went on to claim the Munster Rugby Young Player of the Year award for that season.

Leaving Munster at the end of the 2013/14 season, Ian took time out from the professional game to travel and further his education. Pursuing an MBA at Cambridge University resulted in his appearance for the light blues in the annual colours game at Twickenham against Oxford in December ‘15. He played the remainder of the season with London Irish while committing to a full time return to pro rugby with Leinster for the 2016/17 season.
