Professional rugby player from Dublin wins dream Instagram travel job

What a few days for this man.

If the name Harry McNulty strikes a chord with you, it's not surprising, because he is having one hell of a week.


He scored a try for the Irish rugby sevens team at the weekend as Ireland beat Russia and Germany in the knock-outs before downing Hong Kong 28-7 in the final to secure a spot on the World Rugby Sevens circuit in 2020.

The 26-year-old McNulty was also one of 37,000 UK and Irish applicants for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s shore explorer position... and he's only gone and won the bloody thing.

The company was looking for somebody to join their cruise for three weeks in order to act as the apprentice to their "Instagrammer-in-Chief," Russ Francis. The role will include documenting their experiences and uploading the footage to Instagram, Instagram Stories and IGTV.

The trip will see McNulty exploring the likes of Japan, Alaska, Europe and the Middle East, as well as being one of the first to step foot on Royal Caribbean’s new and exclusive private island in the Caribbean, Perfect Day at CocoCay, opening next month.

He'll be tasked with seeking out new land-based experiences across the globe that will ultimately influence the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's shore excursion programme.

He’ll spend three weeks this summer travelling the world to test out, and document, land-based experiences, earning €6,600 in the process

It's not difficult to see why he was chosen, the man clearly has a flair for it...
