During his time as head coach, Ireland won three Six Nations championships in six seasons with Ireland, including the Grand Slam in 2018.

And there have been a host of firsts: the first Irish victory in South Africa; the first Irish defeat of the All Blacks, and then a second; and Ireland’s first number one world ranking.

This Thursday, Joe Schmidt will tell the story of his life and influences: the experiences and management ideas that made him the coach, and the man, that he is today.

And he will share intimate insights into the stresses and joys of coaching a national team in both victory and defeat, through the 2018 Grand Slam and the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Tickets for the event are €50, and every ticket comes with a signed copy of his new book. 

Closing date for the competition is Wednesday 12 noon.
