Fintan Gunne

28th Jul 2003 1.81m/kg Scrum Half

Fintan was a mainstay of Richie Murphy’s Ireland U-20s with the all-action number nine a constant thorn in the sides of those he met. He scored a try against England in the Grand Slam decider in Cork.

In April 2023, he was invited on the two-game tour of South Africa by Leo Cullen where he picked up valuable experience and will now enter the Leinster Rugby Academy in time for the 2023/24 season.

Fintan is studying Commerce in UCD and started his rugby in Old Belvedere RFC, before attending St. Michael’s College. He now lines out for Terenure RFC in the Energia All-Ireland League.

As a youngster, he was also a talented golfer (Leinster development squad at U-15s) and swimmer (gold medallist in Leinster freestyle gala), before he turned his focus towards rugby where his dad had also shown promise until a knee injury cut short his career shortly after leaving Castleknock College.

He has been capped at age grade level by Leinster Rugby at U-18s and U-19s, before making his Ireland U-20s debut in the 2023 Six Nations.
