Leinster and Ireland rugby star Tadhg Furlong says he is enjoying his downtime during the current Lockdown. Tadhg is on his own among the Leinster squad in that he is now back on the family farm in Campile in County Wexford. Furlong said: “I am happy out. You have freedom, that’s what you have. You can go out around the fields. We have an old farmhouse and I would say we moved out of there when I was three or four. It kind of went into ruin, so I decided ‘sure look, what else am I at?’ So me and the oul’ fella are just cleaning it out, and we might make something of it. But sure if we don’t, nothing ventured, nothing gained. We are ripping out the galvanized roof. It’s been good fun. It’s a long time since I got to spend this much time at home.”
