Leinster Rugby - or Rugbai Laighean in the club’s native Gaelic - is Dublin’s leading rugby union team and Ireland’s most successful club on both a domestic and European level. Originally founded back in 1879 in the city, Leinster Rugby is also one of Ireland’s four professional provincial teams alongside Munster, Ulster and Connacht.
Leinster’s long and prestigious history has seen the club enjoy an impressive array of cup triumphs and league victories in competitions old and new. It currently competes in the PRO14 championship, in which it holds the current record for the most championship wins (7), as well as the Heineken Champions Cup, where at present, they are tied with Toulouse for the most titles (4).
