From the Bective Rangers website:
Magee
No reference to the early days of Bective could fail to include the Magee name, synonymous with the club from its inception to the present day. While the great Louis (the 1880s version) is not mentioned in Joyce’s work, his brother James is, along with Paddy Rath in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The occasion was February 1891 when a Bective team played against Clongowes where James Joyce was a nine year-old pupil. “It was the night of the match against Bective Rangers” and the young Joyce was shown “a ball of creamy sweets… and the ball was made just like a red and green apple”, the Bective colours at the time, before the white was added. Joyce left Clongowes that year. Paddy Rath and James Magee subsequently played for Bective and James, although he was not capped for Ireland, toured South Africa with the Lions in 1896 with his brother Louis.

A chemical engineer from Blackrock, McLoughlin was first captained for Ireland in 1962, when he was an undergraduate at University College, Dublin. Having captained his province, Connacht, McLoughlin was duly rewarded with the captaincy of his country.

In 1966, McLoughlin toured Australia and New Zealand with the British Lions but was troubled by injury and only played in three of the six Tests. Injury continued to prevent his participation in the Irish side, however in 1971 he was recalled and then gained a place on the Lions tour later that year to Australia and New Zealand. McLoughlin’s tour ended early as he broke his thumb while it assisted in some ‘early retribution’ during the infamous Canterbury game and so was unable to add to his Test caps.

He played 40 times for Ireland and captained his country on 7 occasions.

Ray was also a member of the Barbarians side in which Gareth Edwards famously scored “That Try” against the 1973 All Blacks at the Arms Park in Cardiff.

In 1970 he captained the Penguin International Rugby Club team on their tour to the USA (Caifornia).

A successful businessman, Ray was chief executive of industrial holdings group James Crean and is currently chairman of printing group Oakhill. He sold James Crean for $78 million (he paid €12.2 million in 2001).

Raymond McLoughlin Non-executive Director The Oakhill Group Plc. Raymond McLoughlin has been chief executive of James Crean plc since its establishment in 1973.

He first played for Ireland aged 18 in 1920, against France (it was France’s first ever away victory) and went on to Captain Ireland on 14 occassions. He played a smattering of matches for London Irish when his hospital and international duties allowed.

In 1923 he played for Ireland/Scotland v England/Wales in the Centenary Match at Rugby School, along side his brother Harry William Vaughan Stephenson (who he also appeared along side in 14 internationals for Ireland). He scored 14 tries for Ireland in the 5 Nations and helped Middlesex to the County Championship in 1929.

He also played for Haileybury College, Queens University, North of Ireland, Middlesex, the London Hospital and the Barbarians.

Thomas Eymard (Tom) Reid

Position: Lock

DOB: 03/03/1926 Limerick. Died: 12/11/1996 Montreal.

Image
Inbetween Tony O’Reilly and Rev Robin Roe Ireland 1956/7

Tom Reid the man who took “what goes on tour stays on tour” to literally, in 1957 he went the first Barbarians oversea’s tour to Canada, towards the end of the tour he was in his hotel room, when a team mate stuck his head around the door and asked him when he was going to start packing, he replied ‘I’m not coming. Yer go with without me.’ ‘Don’t be daft. Get packed.’ ‘I tell yer, I’m not coming. I’ve met a woman, I’m in love and I’m staying here forever.’ And he did.

He only travelled to Canada as a replacement for P.G.D. Robbins (of England and Oxford) who had badly injured a shoulder in a swimming bath at Penarth during the Barbarians Easter tour.

Image
Barbarians squad picture 1954

Tom Reid was a former Gaelic footballer, who played for Garryowen, before moving to London Irish, he also toured with the Lions to South Africa in 1955 (along with Robin Roe & Robin Thompson).The late Richard Harris played along side him for Garryowen.

He was capped by Ireland on 13 occasions, and played for the Barbarians on 14 occasions.

In 1956 he also played for the Ranji Walkers XV against the Dublin Wanderers and Galwegians along with his London Irish colleague T.A. (Bish) Gallagher.

He was still playing rugby into his late forties in the scond row for the Town of Mount Royal Club in Montreal.

Tom Reid's famous remark when Ireland was defeated 22-nil by England at Twickenham, "And weren't we lucky to get nil".

Remember how Tom Reid, the Limerick, Ireland and Lions second row proclaimed his greatest fear? "To be caught," he said, "in the middle of Twickenham with the ball in me hands."

Darren Edwards

Leeds have signed scrum-half Darren Edwards on a two-year deal as they continue to rebuild following their relegation from the Premiership.
The 32-year-old former London Irish player is their 11th signing of the summer as they try to bounce straight back to the top flight.

"Having spoken with director of rugby Stuart Lancaster, I know Leeds have a hungry group of players," he said.

"They have ambitions not just for this season but for the years ahead."

Many thanks to Torrestes for providing the following information:

I can tell you that Nick Drake is currently a (playing) member of AAC Rugby in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He doesn't play very often since he is very busy with his job at Adidas International as Head of Rugby.
I know he has played for 7's invitational sides as Samurai and the Marauders since he left London Irish (but that's no wonder if you have played 7's for your country).

Connacht sign Strudwick
Squad News

06/11/2006
Connacht coach Michael Bradley has strengthened his squad by signing former London Irish captain Ryan Strudwick.

The acquisition of the experienced lock forward is a timely boost for Connacht as they bid to strengthen their position in the Magners League and face into key games in the European Challenge Cup.

The 33 year old South African, who captained London Irish to the Powergen Cup four years ago, will link up with Connacht later this week on a deal which runs to the end of the season.

The 6'5", 17st 10lbs lock forward spent eight seasons with London Irish up to this summer, having joined from Harlequins. Prior to that he played with Natal.

He also played for South African University and the Barbarians.

Connacht have been in the market for an experienced lock forward and CEO Gerry Kelly said that the signing of Strudwick is a major capture for Connacht.

"We have three lock forwards in our squad and they are aged 26 or under, so bringing in an experienced player in this position has been a priority.

"Ryan brings a wealth of experience to the side and he will fit in well here. He is a big addition to us," said Kelly.

Former Player died recently:

Lawrence Percy Farrer L'Estrange

from the Irish Times:

L'ESTRANGE (Larry) (Lawrence Percy Farrer, M.B.E. M.A. T.D.) - March 29, 2007, aged 72, died suddenly in hospital in France. Beloved husband of Marian, dearly loved father to Fiona, brother to John and Bunty and stepfather to Eve. Funeral Service on April 3, 2007 in France.


As well as playing for London Irish (he was awarded the 193-64 Backs Honour's tie) he also played for Sussex and the Territorial Army. He was capped once by Ireland in 1962 against England at Twickenham. He was one of 9 new caps in that match.

He reached the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

In 1984 he made the news went he was mistakenly barred from entering Greece because he had a Turkish North Cyrus visa in his passport. After potesting to the Greek Embassy in London, he was given a full apology plus a return plane ticket and 2 weeks holiday in Greece for free.
from A Passion in Exile:

L'ESTRANGE ONE

Few London Irish rugby players have had a background as interesting as Larry L'Estrange, who won a single cap for Ireland v England in 1962. L'Estrange, who was born in Lytham, Lancashire, of Irish parents, was educated at Blackrock College, Dublin; the University of Chicago; and the Sorbonne in Paris. He then did National Service as a parachutist in Cyprus and Suez and was commissioned, before returningf to Ireland to study modern history and political science at Dublin University.

No mention of Zak Feaunati, Jake Boer, Flavin, Jim Staples, Rob Henderson. Don't think you will find Eddie Halvey at Shannon but he may be a member of the Portlaoise team

Kerrygold, the real list is in the Features area of the site here : http://www.london-irish.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=987 .... I think a lot of the pictures will need updating as some are missing, plus I suppose we'll have to make a number of changes over the summer.

Couple of updates to the list for Liam Mooney and Jonathan Griffin (anyone remember him as he was before my time?).

Also, can anyone confirm where the following are heading to:

Michael Collins - Glasgow Warriors?
Oliver Magne - ?
Richie Rees - Cardiff Blues
Ben Willis - ?

I don't think Beefy should be added to the list as he isn't really leaving LI.

Finally, Edd Thrower has moved on from Wasps to Saracens to fill Thomas Castaignede's spot since he quit club rugby : http://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/displa ... 561.0..php
