Westport girl on winning Ireland U18 Girls Sevens squad who won UK championship

A Westport teenager is among the Ireland Under-18 Girls Sevens squad, who broke new ground by reaching their first ever final and winning it as they were crowned UK School Games Rugby 7s champions at Loughborough University on Saturday night.

Having won four of their six pool matches, the Ireland girls saved their best for last when they dethroned defending champions England South East (17-5) at the semi-final stage and then overcame pre-tournament favourites Wales 19-10 in a pulsating final under floodlights.

Westport Rugby Club’s Grace Browne Moran  and Ballinsloe RFC duo Meabh Deeley and Aoibheann Reilly were part of the squad.
