Fingal County Council, in conjunction with Leinster Rugby, are hosting a Q&A session with a fantastic group of women in rugby.

This is designed to show case women across all spectrums of the game and provide the tools for more women to get involved in their local clubs in all and any roles.

A great night is in store at Suttonians RFC on Thursday, 10 March from 7pm-8.30pm.

Women and girls of all ages are encouraged to attend the Q&A, whether you have no experience or knowledge of the game, everyone is welcome to ask questions about all things rugby, coaching and how to get involved in your local clubs.

It will also be a great opportunity to get advice from current players and coaches in the women’s game who have coached across all forms of the sport. We will explore and discuss ways you can get involved in your local clubs at the start and then get the experiences and insight into how our panel got involved in all things rugby.
