Three Irish former rugby players sue IRFU over alleged head injuries (via Irish Times)

Cases are part of a wider series of claims here and in the UK alleging inadequate protection from possibility of concussion

Three former rugby players, including two former internationals, have lodged High Court proceedings against the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) for damages, and more players are expected to do so shortly.

David Corkery and Declan Fitzpatrick, who both played for Ireland, and Ben Marshall, who played for Leinster and Connacht, are seeking damages for injuries they claim they suffered while playing the game.

The cases are part of a wider series of lawsuits that are being taken in the UK and here alleging that rugby players were inadequately protected from the possibility of concussion leading to long-term serious injury.
