Leinster Womens Squad vs Connacht Sat 7th December
Saturday 30th November kicked off the first of three matches to be played, in the Women's Interprovincial Rugby Series. The Leinster Squad has put in tremendous passion, determination and grit in the lead up to the Interprovincial Competitions. Captained by Marie Louise Reilly, the team beat both Connacht 12-0, and the Exiles 19-0, in pre competition friendlies. They executed true skill, creativity & drive against Ulster on Saturday in the first Interprovincial match; it was champagne rugby resulting in a winning score line of 41-7 to Leinster.
Clontarf is sure to be championing, what is a household name, Fiona Coghlan. Proud to be born and reared in Clontarf & currently teaching in Lucan Community College, she boasts an impression Rugby career thus far. She has achieved 11 All Ireland league titles with UL Bohs, 2 Interprovincial Titles and last year was part of the Irish Six Nations Grand Slam Title winners.
There must be something in the water as she shares some amazing similarities with another of our sporting heroes. Fiona Coghlan and Brian O'Driscoll are both Clontarf natives, and have captained both Leinster and their national sides!
