Girvan Dempsey

Attack & Backs Coach

Dempsey drives the evolution of our attacking game, leading the coaching delivery for Attack and Backs play. He works closely with the coaching team and half-backs to develop the game we want to play, as well as week-to-week performances. 

Dempsey joined Bath Rugby in the summer of 2018 after having been an integral part of the success at Leinster over the previous few seasons, including success in Europe in the Champions Cup.

Girvan enjoyed a playing career that saw him capped 82 times by Ireland, which included him playing in three Triple Crown winning teams.
