UL BOHEMIANS WILL bid to win their 14th Women’s All-Ireland League title when they take on Railway Union in this year’s final.

Champions for the past two seasons, UL Bohs recorded a 20-0 victory over Blackrock in their semi-final meeting this evening at the University of Limerick.

In a repeat of the All-Ireland Cup final clash a fortnight ago — which the Limerick side won 17-5 — the Red Robins kept their three-in-a-row hopes on track thanks to tries from Stephanie Nunan, Fiona Reidy, Fiona Hayes and Niamh Kavanagh.

In the second semi-final, Railway Union avenged their defeat at this stage last year by running out 29-7 winners against Old Belvedere at Anglesea Road.

Molly McCabe, Katie O’Dwyer, Emma Murphy, Meg Kendal and Lindsay Peat scored the tries in a convincing Railway Union victory.
