We caught up with some of our Members and players ahead of Sunday’s Aviva Premiership fixture against Northampton Saints at the Madejski Stadium (kick-off 3pm) to talk to them about what London Irish means to them.
Supporter Margaret Keane said: “I love London Irish and I love the family atmosphere in which all the children are included. I love the camaraderie with all the players and getting to know them.”
Attack and backs coach Paul Hodgson, who has had a long-term connection with the club, said: London Irish is dear to my heart and I’ve known a lot about the club since schoolboy rugby. I have had the privilege to be a part of the club for the last 15 years and it is an honour to work for London Irish.”
London Irish centre Fergus Mulchrone said: “It is an honour to play for London Irish and I am excited to see our supporters at the Madejski Stadium this season.”
Derek Foley, who has been a member of the London Irish Family for a number of years said: “I have been following London Irish for most of my adult life. For me, London Irish is about belonging and I couldn’t see myself following any other club because I feel part of the family.”
