The WNL Highlights


The Wexford Youths take the lead in the SSE Airtricity Women’s National League to wrap up a big weekend for the WNL. With Shelbourne, Peamount United and Athlone Town not closely behind, it will be tough to see who keeps at the top of the leaderboard next week. The results from this weekend are:



Athlone Town 2-0 Shelbourne

Peamount United 2-0 Sligo Rovers

Cork City 1-0 Galway WFC

Wexford Youths 3-0 Treaty United


Bohemians 2-0 DLR Waves

Energia AIL Rugby Results


Ballincollig got their second heavy hitting defeat against Old Belvedere. Enya Breen made her Blackrock debut in the second half against Cooke where they were led to victory by Michelle Claffey in a fifth minute try. The Suttonians’ undefeated start of the season almost came to an end, but luckily, they drew enough effort to end with a draw against the Galwegians. 

Ballincollig 10- 85 Old Belvedere

Blackrock College 40-7 Cooke

Suttonians 31-31 Galwegians

UL Bohemians 5-24 Railway Union

Galway’s Aine McDonagh Made Her Debut for Hawthorne


For the first time since injuring her ribs in preseason and finishing with six disposals, she played a hard game when Hawthorne was beaten by the Western Bulldogs 37-7.

AFLW, Tighe and Wall Score a Brace Each


Aine Tighe kicked the opening score of the day as the Fremantle Dockers were chasing the first win of the season. She missed a late chance as the Dockers had a draw of 32-32 against Carlton. For North Melbourne, Vikki Wall scored two as her team secured a 12 point win over Freelong. The final score in that match was 28-16. 


Orla O’Dwyer Leads Brisbane Lions to Top of AFLW League


The Tipperary footballer contributed as Brisbane made four wins from four to make it to the top of the AFL Women’s standings. O’Dwyer made eight disposals and nine tackles for the Lions as they won over a Melbourne team 42-27 at Casey’s Field. 


Katie Stengel’s Debut Led Liverpool to Victory


Katie Stengal led Liverpool to a 2-1 victory over defending champions Chelsea. With only two penalties, Stengal’s Women’s Super league debut seems to be a success. 


Kiernan’s Injury Leads to Problems for Liverpool


Not everything was fun and games for Liverpool in their victory once Chelsea’s Kadeisha Buchanan brought down Liverpool’s Leanne Kiernan to the point where she was forced off the field with the help of two staff. With Ireland’s historic 2023 World Cup play-off next month, this leads fans to wonder what Vera Pauw’s game plan is moving forward without one of her strikers.
