The exhibition will tell the story of this sporting relationship, tracing the historic development of the Ireland-France game, through sporting highs and lows, and showcase the stories of Irish players and coaches who have contributed to French rugby. The exhibition will also provide digital content to be shared through Government of Ireland and partners’ platforms and social media.
