“There are a lot of exciting opportunities ahead for the Women’s programme, including the Rugby World Cup Sevens this summer and qualification for Rugby 7s at the Olympics in Tokyo. There is also continued development for the Women’s Six Nations Championship and qualification for the next Women’s Rugby World Cup to work towards.”
Griggs, whose Ireland side finished third in the Women’s Six Nations last weekend, added: “I’m delighted to join the IRFU High Performance Unit. The Women’s Six Nations was a huge challenge for the squad, and while there is plenty of room for improvement, the foundations and progress of the squad was very satisfying. 
“I am looking forward to helping our teams represent Ireland on the world stage. With some key tournaments and events in the years ahead, it’s a very exciting time to be involved with Women’s rugby in Ireland.”
