Wexford Native Paul Boyle Handed First Cap For Connacht In Thomond Park

He’s one of our own. Paul Boyle…remember the name. 

Despite being only 20-years of age, Wexford native Paul Boyle was handed his first cap for the Connacht Rugby team yesterday evening when they faced Munster in Thomond Park.

As mentioned in an earlier article, Boyle captained the Irish u20’s throughout the World Cup last year before switching his Leinster allegiances to Connacht.

Boyle, who hails from North Wexford, was handed his debut after he replaced Connacht captain John Muldoon in the 57th minute.

Despite losing out heavily on the night to Munster on a scoreline of 39-13, Boyle will be delighted that he was handed the opportunity to represent his club, family and friends at such a high level just a week short of his 21st birthday.

Dare we say it – Gordon D’arcy, Tadhg Furlong… Paul Boyle?
