The SFA Annual Lunch is the primary social event for small business in Ireland and an excellent opportunity for you, your colleagues, clients and guests to come together and network in a relaxed environment.

We are delighted to be joined by Ireland’s Rugby World Cup captain Johnny Sexton, as our Keynote Speaker on the day.

Throughout his career, Sexton has been a pillar of strength for both club and country. He has represented Ireland at the highest level, earning numerous caps for the national team. His debut for Ireland came in 2009, and since then, he has played a pivotal role in his country's success on the international stage. Sexton has featured in multiple Six Nations campaigns, guiding Ireland to victory in 2014, 2015, 2018, and 2019. In addition, he has played a crucial part in Ireland's consistent performances in the Rugby World Cup.

At the club level, Sexton's achievements are equally impressive. He has been an integral member of Leinster Rugby, one of Ireland's most successful clubs. With Leinster, he has captured several domestic and European titles, including multiple Pro14 championships and European Rugby Champions Cup triumphs. His contributions to the team have earned him accolades and admiration from fans and peers alike.

Sexton's playing style is characterized by his tactical awareness, accurate kicking, and excellent distribution skills. He possesses a remarkable ability to control the game, analysing situations and orchestrating plays with precision. His kicking prowess, especially from the tee, has been instrumental in securing crucial points for his teams.

Off the field, Sexton is known for his professionalism, dedication, and humble demeanor. He is highly respected by his teammates and opponents alike, earning a reputation as a true gentleman of the game.
