The roadshow will be stopping at Carton House Training Facility, Carton House, Co. Kildare on Sunday 23rd of November and the Sportsground, Galway on Sunday 7th December from 10.30am until 12.30pm. The Roadshow will also visit Cork early in the New Year. The Mazda Rugby Roadshow events are the ideal opportunity for young rugby fans and adults alike to meet and receive rugby skills from top Connacht Rugby players and former Irish International players, including Alan Quinlan.

Official Mazda Ambassador and former All-Black centurion Mils Muliaina alongside top players from the squad will be attending and will take children through their rugby paces and, will teach them all they need to know about the game. Not to forget about the adults – there will be four very special Mazda vehicles to test drive at each event including the all-new Mazda 3, Mazda 6, Mazda CX-5 and the spectacular Mazda MX-5.

Commenting ahead of the Mazda Rugby Roadshow series, Mils Muliaina said: ‘I’m delighted to be Mazda’s Official Car Ambassador this year – I love my Mazda CX-5 AWD and I’m really looking forward to driving around Ireland and seeing more of this beautiful country in the coming weeks.  We’re delighted to be supporting Mazda Ireland with these events and look forward to meeting rugby supporters from around the country”.

Adding to this Tony Howarth, Managing Director, Mazda Ireland mentioned: “We, at Mazda Ireland, are proud to be official car sponsor of Connacht Rugby and we are delighted that, through our partnership with Connacht Rugby, we can give something back to our customers with our Mazda Rugby Roadshow. With a fleet of our 2015 cars available to test drive in each location we’re giving attendees an opportunity to be some of the first people in the country to take them for a spin and receive tips from some of the best rugby players in Ireland”.
