UL Bohs edge Railway to reach All Ireland Cup Final

Treble chasing UL Bohemians set up All-Ireland cup final.

UL Bohemians are into the All Ireland Cup final after with a narrow victory over Dublin side Railway Union in the All-Ireland Cup semi-final replay on the UL 4G pitch on Sunday.

All four of the games between UL Bohemians and Railway this season have been very tight, the Limerick side being the winners on this occasion.

Bohemians got there first try of the match in the 20th minute through Captain Fiona Hayes who went over the line for the games first try. Railway Union did not sit back from this and only two minutes later Meg Kendall got her team on the score board with a try.

Moments later UL Bohemians full back Edel Murphy got her teams second try of the game, and kicked her own conversion to give her team a 12-5 lead at half time.

Railway Union came out after half time all guns blazing and after six minutes left-winger Emer O’Mahony scored a try to reduce the deficit to only a couple of points.

This was to be Railways last try of the match and both teams struggled to get past each others defences. It was Bohemians who came out the better team narrowly beating there rivals 12-10.

Speaking to Sporting Limerick in the build up to the semi final replay, head coach Mike Storey was focusing on keeping things ticking over in training and keeping minds focused.

Storey and co. will have another week of training with a historic treble now firmly in their sights.

UL Bohemians are on a roll, having already won the Munster Cup and the All Ireland League. They will play Blackrock next Sunday in the All Ireland Cup final.
