In domestic competition Leinster have an excellent reputation at the Irish Interprovincial competition in both Grade A and in the Premier event in recent years.
The Leinster Senior Team has been very successful in the ICC event also. This competition is carried out in a league format over the course of three weekends in English cities, with teams from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland taking part. There are several divisions in this competition, and teams battle it out in a bid to win their league or to gain promotion to a higher league each season.
In 2018 Leinster gained promotion to the top level, the ICC Premier League after an excellent season in Division 1. This was a fantastic achievement for the players and management who had worked hard towards this for a number of years. Competing in the Premier division is a fantastic opportunity for our players to challenge themselves against players who have been capped for England, Scotland and Wales, former Olympic medallists, former World and European medallists as well as up and coming talent who have medalled at European level in junior competitions.
