ENNIS/KILRUSH RFC made history when winning the Munster Division 2 Cup final for the first time.

In their first season amalgamated together, Ennis/Kilrush’s women’s side had a comprehensive 49-0 win over Midleton on Sunday last in Musgrave Park.

They are vying for more glory this weekend when they face off with Thurles at the University of Limerick.

Ailish Dunne got over the line for the first of her three tries following a well-worked set piece from a scrum, Cayla Flannery made a well-timed pass to send Dunne under the posts. Aoibheann Hahessy got the side’s second try while the Amy Flavin picked up the third when Emma O’Dwyer sent a perfectly timed pass in her direction.

All three tries were converted from the boot of Cayla Flannery to leave the Clare side ahead 21-0 at half-time. She managed to finish the final with one hundred percent accuracy from the kicking tee.

Midleton began to test the Ennis/Kilrush defence on the resumption but Karen O’Sullivan and Ciara Coughlan were among those to stop any potential inroads being made by the Cork side.

Kilmihil native Micaela Glynn made a powerful line break which sent Hahessy away to score her second try, once again Flannery did the business from the conversion. Glynn was joint captain alongside Ciara Clohessy.

Substitute Emman Ikeiby made an immediate impact, scoring a fantastic solo try from well inside her own half. Likewise, Caoimhe Flynn impressed when introduced, she was the provider for two of Ailish Dunne’s tries.

Ennis/Kilrush: Grace Molloy, Sarah Coote, Patricia Coote, Ailish Dunne, Micaela Glynn, Cayla Flannery, Emma O’Dwyer; Aoife McMahon, Nicole Leamy, Aoibhinn Brown, Karen O’Sullivan, Ciara Coughlan, Amy Flavin, Caoilfhionn Morrissey, Aoibheann Hahessy.

Subs: Emily Anglim, Amy Lander, Sophie Roughan, Ciara Clohessy, Caoimhe Flynn, Emma Ikeiby, Grace Colleran
