With the Lions set to tour New Zealand in the summer, Queen's University will host a dinner on Friday 21st April in the Whitla Hall to honour and celebrate the 20 players that have both represented the university and the Lions.
Queen's University Rugby Football Club is the old continuous rugby club in Ulster founded in 1869 as Queen's College and the second oldest club in Ireland. During Queen's rich history they have won the Ulster Senior Cup a record 23 times.
The club has provided the Lions with 20 players, more than any other club in Ireland, from Andrew Foster and William Tyrell on the 1910 tour to South Africa, to the club's latest Lion Tommy Bowe, a double tourist in 2009 and 2013.
The Gala Dinner will involve a Q & A session with Lions from various generations - 'what happens on tour won't be staying on tour'.
A Hall of Fame will be introduced on the night named in honour of Robbie (Robin) Moore, who after 30 odd years of dedicated service to the club where he held every post from President to sandwich maker, sadly passed away last November.
Some of the club's and Lions legends will be inducted into the Hall of Fame and receive a special presentation.
An auction and ballot with some unique sporting memorabilia and other top prizes will take place on the night.
