Fiona Coghlan
Fiona Coghlan

One of Ireland's most experienced and influential players, Fiona famously captained Ireland to an historic Women's Grand Slam in 2013 and first-ever wins over England and New Zealand.

A real rock of the Irish pack, the workhorse prop took up rugby in college at UL and continues to line out for Bohemians at club level as well as her native province Leinster.

The Clontarf woman, who works as a PE and maths teacher in Lucan, took over the Irish captaincy from Sarahjane Belton in 2008 and was installed in the role permanently two years later.

Deservedly voted the 2013 Irish Times/Irish Sports Council Sportswoman of the Year, Fiona has now played over 80 times for her country and is gunning for WRWC glory in France.
