The online home of Women's Rugby


The Irish women’s team represents both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in rugby union. The team competes predominantly in competitions in Europe including the 6 Nations and the European Championships. Ireland have recently begun to compete at Sevens level and have qualified for the 2013 Sevens World Cup being held in Russia. Ireland have made huge strides in recent seasons and are one of Europe’s top sides in the 15s game.  The Irish women’s game was run by the IWRFU, a voluntary governing body, until 2009 when the running of the game was taken over by the IRFU.
