Munster Rugby and the IRFU have today confirmed that Mossy Lawler will join the southern province at the beginning of the 2023/24 season as Skills Coach.
A former Munster player, Mossy will return to the province after eight years with Connacht Rugby where he is Attack and Skills Coach with the senior men’s squad. Prior to his current role he was Elite Player Development Officer with their academy and Head Coach to the Connacht Eagles.
Lawler played with Munster from 2000 to 2008, enjoying Champions Cup, Celtic League and Celtic Cup success before making the move to play in the Premiership with Wasps. The Limerick man has previously held the position of UL Bohemians Director of Rugby and coached at his former school Ardscoil Rís.
Commenting on the appointment, Head Coach Graham Rowntree said,
“We are delighted to have Mossy joining our set-up this summer.
“We have been really impressed with what he has done in Connacht over the last few years, and he will be a valuable addition to our coaching ticket bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role.
“We are always looking for ways to improve and fine tune what we are doing so to have a dedicated resource in this area and someone of Mossy’s calibre working with our players will be really beneficial.”
