Last years campaign was outstanding with the UCC finishing top of the league table and entering the finals. UCC ladies started their campaign this time last year with a winning start with a 20-15 win over NUIG in Galway and had continued success against DCU ending with a score line of 34-5. Intense training paid off with a well-deserved win over UL which left UCC in top of the table over the Christmas period. Following a resounding win over WIT away from home UCC secured their place in the final against the Garda College. UCC came off second best in a tense and frantic game at the Mardyke where they managed to touch down once. It finished with a disappointing score line for UCC of 13-5.
The Ladies team also represented UCC at the Intervarsities in Maynooth. A total of six teams took part, UL Bohs, NUI Maynooth, Ulster University, CIT, and Garda College. The Garda College proved there strength once again by defeating UL in the final. Despite only losing to the Garda College, UCC finished 3rd in the 3rd and fourth playoffs, with a convincing victory over CIT.
UCC Ladies take to the field for their first match of the new season in November, captained by Clare Rigney and working closely with her will be vice captain Jen Barry.
