Railway Union and Suttonians are looking to make history on Saturday, April 4 with the highest ever attendance at a Women’s club rugby game in Ireland.
The sides will meet in the final round of the Energia Women’s All-Ireland League regular season, and hopes are high of a bumper crowd at Park Avenue in Sandymount, Dublin.
“It is the year of 20×20 and increasing the visibility of female sport in Ireland,” said Railway Union President Melissa Slevin. “This is the inaugural year of #ChangeTheGame but our intention is to make this an annual celebration of Women’s rugby.”
Railway Union captain Niamh Byrne commented: “Leinster play Saracens around the corner at the Aviva Stadium on the same day and we’ll be calling on supporters from both teams to come enjoy our game beforehand.
Slevin says the game is a great opportunity to enjoy up close the talent, skill and commitment of women in club rugby.“I’m hopeful that the Irish Rugby community as well as our communities in Sandymount and Sutton will gather together on Saturday, April 4, and make a bold and positive statement about Women’s rugby and where we’re going with it.”
