UL BOHEMIAN run-up against Railway Union in the All-Ireland League Women’s Division 1 Final at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, 1.45pm.

The attractive fixture is the curtain-raiser to the men’s decider between Terenure College and Cork Constitution, 4pm.

Both fixtures are live on TG4.

Speaking to IrishRugby.ie, UL’s Chloe Pearse said: “We’re buzzing, we’re really excited and (have been) creating a great atmosphere within the club. It’s good to be back in the final, five years is a long time but we’re really looking forward to Sunday.”

I think it’s a big thing (to have the final at the Aviva). Having that aspiration that if I go and play senior rugby for a Women’s team that I can play in the Aviva Stadium.”
