Energia Women’s All-Ireland League: Round 6 Review

©INPHO/Oisin Keniry

UL Bohemian opened up a five point gap at the top of the Energia Women’s All-Ireland League with a 24-10 win away to Railway Union. The two sides were unbeaten up to now in the 2019/20 campaign, but UL Bohs moved clear of their rivals with a dynamic performance at Park Avenue.

Ciara O’Halloran broke the deadlock after 30 minutes with Railway’s response coming from Larissa Muldoon just four minutes later. Bohs lead 12-5 at half time thanks a converted Chloe Pearse try and Eimear Considine’s effort pushed the advantage out to 17-5.

Railway responded through Amanda McQuade but there was still time for Sarah Quin to seal the win. The game was also notable for a first UL Bohs start for Ennis native Alana McInerney who lined out for Munster in the 2019 U18 Women’s Interprovincial Championships.
