Briggs has amassed plenty of coaching experience in recent times with the former Munster and Ireland out-half currently head coach of Women’s All Ireland League side UL Bohemian while also having the role of assistant coach with Ireland. The Waterford native held the role of assistant coach for the Munster Senior Women squad last season.
"I’m hugely excited. It’s the next step in my progression as a coach but I’m more excited with the fact that I get to work with a brilliant bunch of players again with some really good coaches so I’m very excited."
Of last year’s Interpro success, Briggs added: "That environment and the culture that Matt was growing was so good. It was a really enjoyable group to be a part of and incredibly hard working and wanting to get better all the time. If they can bring that kind of attitude and work ethic again this year, it will stand us in good stead."
