IRFU Announce #EnergiaAIL Finals Double Header At Aviva Stadium

The IRFU are pleased to announce the first ever Energia All Ireland League Men’s and Women’s finals double header, which will be played at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, April 28.

The day will see both All-Ireland League finals played at the home of Irish Rugby for the first time, with the Women’s Division final kicking off at 1.45pm, followed by the Men’s Division 1A decider at 4pm.

With confirmation that both games will be broadcast live on TG4, the race for the final is heating up in both divisions as the fight for a top four spot and a home semi-final continues.

Clontarf currently lead the way from Cork Constitution, reigning champions Terenure College, and Lansdowne in the Men’s top flight, while UL Bohemian are unbeaten at the top of the Women’s Division. Completing the top four, as it stands, are Railway Union, Old Belvedere, and last season’s winners Blackrock College.

The Energia All Ireland Men’s Division 1A semi-finals are scheduled for Saturday, April 20, and the final round of the Women’s Division will take place on Saturday, April 13.

Speaking about the historic Men’s and Women’s finals double header, IRFU Director of Rugby Development, Colin McEntee, said:

This is a unique and historic event for our domestic game and our Energia All Ireland League clubs.

It’s a first finals double header with our Women’s and Men’s sides, who both work equally hard on and off the pitch, and deserve the recognition and reward of playing at the Aviva Stadium, the home of Irish Rugby.”

Energia’s Sponsorship Manager Lorna Danaher added: “We are thrilled that the 2023/24 Energia All-Ireland League season will conclude with a double header.

“We look forward to seeing the top teams from the Men’s and Women’s Divisions battle it out on Sunday, April 28, in what promises to be a day of blockbuster rugby. We encourage everyone to get down for both matches and support Men’s and Women’s grassroots rugby.”

Tickets for the historic Energia All-Ireland League finals day will be on sale on the week commencing March 18.
