Daly migrates West for the Winter

Kilcock man Cormac Daly has today joined Connacht Rugby on a short-term deal.

Daly, who is a former Ireland U20s International, previously trained with the Connacht Professional squad during the 2019/20 season.

The 6’6’’ lock will provide additional cover following a number of international call-ups and injuries in the second row. He had been playing with his club Clontarf up until the most recent lockdown and even helped himself to a try in one of their last games before games drew to a halt.
