As first reported by the Westmeath Independent and confirmed to The42, Cork native O’Sullivan will replace the outgoing Kolo Kiripati at the Athlone side. 

The Samoan left his role earlier this month, after leading Buccs to AIL Division 1B promotion. 

O’Sullivan is best known for winning three Triple Crowns as head coach of Ireland, and he has also had spells with the US national team, Biarritz Olympique and Old Belvedere.
