POPULAR WEBSITE ComeonMunster.ie are hosting the search for Munster’s “greatest fan” and the sole Limerick representative among the final seven candidates is seeking your vote.

David Hennessy, from Fedamore, is a self-confessed rugby nut who “lives and breathes” the oval ball and loves Munster with a passion.

Hennessy, a former St Clement’s and LIT graduate who played with Garryowen and currently coaches Old Crescent and Ard Scoil underage teams, is seeking votes for the Meteor-sponsored ‘Munster’s Greatest Fan Competition’, known as the ‘MTeam’.

The Limerick man is final contestant among seven ardent Munster supporters, who hail from Cork, Waterford, Clare, Kerry and Donegal.

The candidates have to complete a series of tasks, the first of which goes live on Comeonmunster.ie this Wednesday, and sees the final seven having to compose a “love song to Munster”.

“It started off with thousands and was whittled down to the top 12 and down to the seven - I am the last person from Limerick,” said David.

“I have to write and perform a Munster love song about my love for the team. It will then be uploaded on to the website for everyone to see,” he laughed.

The contestants will be reduced to a final three, who will have to perform a live task during a Munster match, and the prize for the winner is a trip to the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. David is already planning to attend the world cup with his future bride, Michelle McCarthy.

“The final prize is a trip to New Zealand for the world cup, which would be brilliant. I am going there anyway for my honeymoon, I have the match tickets got already, but I haven’t the flights or anything booked, it would be very nice,” he laughed.

Voting gets underway on Comeonmunster.ie from this Wednesday and prizes can be won for voting.
