Hurrell happy in Irish rugby
Fashioning fantastic domestic coaching record in Ireland
Former Te Awamutu Sports premier rugby player and Waikato sevens representative Kieran Hurrell continues to leave his mark on domestic rugby in Ireland.
Since arriving in Ireland in 2008, he has uplifted AIL Division 1A, AIL Division 1B and AIL Division 2A, Leinster League 1A and Leinster League 1B medals, as well as the Provincial Towns Cup as a player-coach in 2016 and Provincial Towns Cup as head coach in 2018.
Hurrell has also enjoyed success with his Moosa Daly Wild Geese team at sevens tournaments both in Ireland and Debai.
In 2011 he was instrumental in organising a special rugby match to raise funds for victims of the Japanese and Christchurch earthquakes.
After completing a Double Diploma in Personal Training and Nutrition in 2013 he set up his own fitness training business, taking on strength and conditioning positions within clubs and coaching school teams.
Hurrell has been part of the Leinster coaching staff since 2014 working as head coach with their School of Excellence programme, summer camps and coaching school age players in Italy.
He attained the position of Club Community Rugby Officer in 2016, community rugby officer in 2017 and was recently appointed as coach development officer for Dublin Metropolitan region, working with coach and development and the elite player pathway.
He continues to coach club side Enniscorthy, who were runners-up in Leinster League 1A for 2017-18 season before going on to win the coveted Provincial Towns Cup on April 29 beating last year’s winners Tullow 20-13 in a high octane and intense final.
Held at the impeccable Wicklow RFC, the Wexford men went some way to making up for finishing as runners-up in the league and ended the season with one of the most coveted cups in Leinster rugby.
Hurrell and his wife Zoe live in County Wicklow. His parents, Richard and Gail, watched the final screened live on the Bank of Ireland Facebook page at 3.15am Monday, April 30 (NZ time).
