CLINICAL UL-Bohemian claimed the Women's All-Ireland Cup title for a record sixth time with a deserved 17-5 victory over Blackrock College at Ashbourne on Saturday.

UL-Bohemian opened the scoring with Laura Sheehan’s first half try and took control of the game with Aine Staunton’s second half touchdown.

Winning captain Fiona Hayes said: “We started a bit shaky.

“I think the first 20 minutes didn’t go our way. There were a lot of mistakes, but we regrouped. I’m very proud of the girls and delighted we came away with the win today.”

Blackrock  managed a try through Caoimhe Molloy, who took the ball at pace and powered home.
