The Ireland Women’s team had huge support at Energia Park for the first of their November internationals. A number of clubs organised buses to Donnybrook to bring players and supporters from across the provinces. Irish Rugby TV tagged along with Wicklow RFC to see what the journey was like.
13 clubs in total availed of an IRFU subsidy to defray the cost of attending the Ireland v USA clash, all of whom had taken part in the ‘Give It A Try’ programme during the summer.
Wicklow Rugby Club ended up booking two buses to bring over 100 players and supporters to Adam Griggs’ first November Test as Ireland Women’s head coach. Despite the result, it was a hugely enjoyable day for those who travelled.
