Lahinch are Irish Senior Cup Champions having overcome Royal Portrush, The Heath and Elm Park on their way to victory.

The experienced team which included no less than three past and current Internationals in Aine Donegan, Sarah Cunningham and Sinead Sexton, was completed by Aideen Walsh and Niamh O’Dwyer who both represented Munster at this year’s Women’s and Girls’ Interprovincial Matches.
