Railway Union Hockey_01

Railway Union Ladies Hockey team will represent Ireland at the Eurohockey Club Champions Cup in Den Bosch, Holland from 18th to 21st April.

This is the first time that an Irish ladies club team has competed in the top club competition in Europe. Railway will be in opposition to some of the most elite and strongest team. We wish captain Emma Smyth and her squad every success. A large number of supporters will travel with the team.

On St Patrick’s Day, Railway Union claimed the Jacqui Potter Cup (Leinster Senior Cup) for the third time in four years when they overcame a determined Trinity team in the final. Trinity took the lead but star players Kate Dillon and Emma Smyth eventually found the touch of finesse their side needed to equalise and the get a late winner.
