Joe Schmidt in Conversation – Bord Gais Theatre
Joe Schmidt has just stepped down as Ireland coach having achieved success on a scale never before seen in Irish rugby. Two Heineken Cups in three seasons with Leinster. Three Six Nations championships in six seasons with Ireland, including the Grand Slam in 2018.

Schmidt will tell the story of his life and influences: the experiences and management ideas that made him the coach, and the man, that he is today. And he will share intimate insights into the stresses and joys of coaching a national team in both victory and defeat, through the 2018 Grand Slam and the 2019 Rugby World Cup
