The Women’s All Ireland Sevens competition kicks off tomorrow (Saturday) at Terenure College RFC with six of the All Ireland Women teams taking part. 

I haven’t heard too much about this initiative, except from the clubs involved, but I suspect it’s intended to feed players from the clubs into the Ireland Women’s Sevens programme. 

The tournament is currently scheduled to be played over three rounds with Round 1 kicking off at Terenure at 12:00. The second round is scheduled for the University of Limerick on 15th June, with the third and final round to be played on 22nd June at a venue still to be confirmed. 

The six teams have been split onto two pools as follows. 

Pool A Pool B
Blackrock College Cooke
Galwegians UL Bohs
Railway Union Old Belvedere


With the following pool and knock-out matches taking place.
