The Irish team travelled to Scotland where they prevailed in almost perfect conditions.

THE IRISH WOMEN’S rugby team made history on Saturday by winning the Tripe Crown for the first time.

As well as setting the side up for a tilt at their first Grand Slam, the win also secured their qualification for the 2014 World Cup.
