Old Wesley Women’s Rugby First Match

Women Make History at Old Wesley

A little bit of history was created at Old Wesley tonight when they played their first ever women’s rugby match. The ladies braved the inclement weather to play a tag rugby match against Terenure at Donnybrook. Old Wesley came away with a 7-6 win but everyone was a winner on the night with the emphasis on fun and participation. Congratulations to Women’s Rugby Director Avril Poff and Coach Andrew Adams for their hard work in achieving this milestone and we wish the team every success for the future. 
Scorers : Jessica Murphy (2), Brid Firtear (2), Sharon McGeady (2), Sinead Dolan (1)
Old Wesley : Emma Kiernan, Susan Brown, Rachel Byrne, Siobhan Costello, Geraldine Cloney, Vicky Meredith, Sinead Dolan, Jessica Murphy, Brid Firtear, Sharon McGeady.
Women’s rugby training takes place every Monday evening in Donnybrook at 7pm (with a second night planned for the future), new players welcome.
