Head Coach Niamh Briggs has named a 34 woman squad for the Vodafone Women’s Interprovincial which kicks off on January 7th when Munster open their title defence against Ulster at Musgrave Park.

Briggs has included Energia AIL winners Enya Breen, Dorothy Wall and Maeve Óg O’Leary from Blackrock College alongside Aoife Doyle and Stephanie Carroll from beaten finalists Railway Union. The Ireland capped Laura Sheehan, who is playing with Exeter, is also included.

18 players have been retained from last year’s Championship winning squad while six of the current squad have been involved with the national 15s side this year.

Briggs has extensive experience coaching at the highest level in her current roles as head coach of UL Bohemian RFC and assistant coach of the Ireland Women’s team. The Waterford native held the role of assistant coach of the Munster Senior Women squad last season.

Matt Brown, who successfully led Munster to the Women’s Interprovincial Championship last season, will act as assistant coach. Brown was recently appointed as a Pathway Development Coach with Munster Rugby and has previously coached at Galwegians, Clanwilliam, Railway Union and Old Wesley along with the Munster U18 Women side.

Fiona Hayes and Mike Storey complete Briggs’ coaching staff.
