Cian Kelleher departs Leinster to move to Ealing Trailfinders


Cian Kelleher says he's "really excited" to be joining English Championship high-flyers Ealing Trailfinders from Leinster this summer. 

It brings to and end the second spell at the PRO14 champions for the 26-year-old, who backed back to Dublin in 2019 after three seasons at Connacht.

The back-three player has been capped by the Ireland Sevens team and scored 12 tries in 24 games for the four-time European Champions, most recently against his former side Connacht in the Rainbow Cup.

“I’d like to thank Leinster Rugby for my time with the club," Kelleher said upon announcing his impeding departure. "It’s been enjoyable and particularly getting to play with my brother and best friends once again. They’re memories I’ll cherish.

“The last year has been strange to say the least and it would have been great to have played in front of the supporters in the RDS Arena one more time, but it’s not meant to be. I would like to thank them all for their support of me during the highs and the lows of my time here and the welcome afforded to me on my return.

“I’m really excited by the challenge in Ealing Trailfinders and it’s one I’m relishing over in the UK.

“I’m looking forward to linking up with Ben Ward and with Kieran Campbell joining next season as well, it’s a club with really exciting ambitions that I’m thrilled to be a part of.

“I want to finish my time with Leinster in the right manner and then I’ll look to start a new chapter with Ealing which I can’t wait to get started.”
