Check us out on Facebook under ‘Drumettes.’ Rathdrum Senior ladies finished their Leinster League fixtures last Sunday, in the Ivy Leaf grounds against Trinity. With Trinity recently demoted from division two and the Drumettes christening their new kit, a big game was anticipated all round.

Trinity opened the score board with an easily kicked penalty. Rathdrum knew more was expected. The Drumettes raised the tempo, and Anna O’Neill scored a try under the post, which Mo Dowling easily converted. 

However, before the close of half time Trinity scored under the posts. With an easy conversion achieved, the first half closed 7-10 to visitors. In the second half Rathdrum’s hard work was rewarded with a try from Jenny Doyle, which Mo Dowling converted. The Drumettes would once again like to thank Mario and “Pineto Take Away,” Rathdrumfor sponsorship towards their new team kit.
