Up to 100 international delegates from World Rugby are in Kilkenny this week for their annual conference.
The event is being held in The Newpark Hotel and delegates are spending two days in the Medieval City.
Hotel manager Mark Dunne expressed his delight at the hosting of the event, which is the first time it has been staged outside a capital city. Usually the conferences can be held anywhere in the world, so it’s a major coup for the Kilkenny hotel.
Delegates are expected to take in some of the sights of Kilkenny during their midweek stay - places like the Smithwicks Experience and Kilkenny Castle are popular destinations for visitors.
