Sadness at Tipperary school on news of death of All Blacks rugby legend

Sadness at Tipperary school on news of death of All Blacks rugby legend

In 2016 while on a tour with his Maori All-Black team, Sean Wainiu took some time out to share in a little puck about with High School students in Thomond Park in Limerick.

Remembering Sean Wainui


It is with great sadness we learned of the passing of New Zealand rugby player Sean Wainui last week. Our First Year Rugby teams were privileged to meet him in Thomond Park in 2016 with his Maori All Black team mates.

On that occasion our students introduced him to hurling and he pucked a few sliotars over the bar at the home of Munster Rugby.

Deepest sympathy to his family, friends and team mates.
