Our girls had the honour of welcoming the Leinster senior women’s team on to the pitch at Donnybrook for Saturday’s match against Connacht. It was a great experience for the girls to be out on the pitch as Leinster warmed up and then watching the game. Jade Gaffney and Cara Martin were ball girls for the match. The rest of the group consisted of Kym McGrath, Sophie O’Neill, Isabella Mallon, Sarah Molloy, Lia MacEwan, Carol Owens and Lucy Delaney.
Leinster won a tough match 17 points to 8. Afterwards, both teams stayed on the pitch, chatted to out girls and signed rugby tops and flags. The girls were thrilled. Thanks to Mark Gaffney for organising it.
Good luck to Leinster Women next week in Thomand park.
