The Women’s National League has finally been able to get going, having originally been scheduled to start in March. 4 games, with one team getting a bye. The league will be split after round 8.
Peamount United 5 – 0 Treaty United
Stephanie Roche scored her first goal on her competitive return to Peamount United. Alannah McEvoy assisted Aine O’Gorman for the opener, before scoring the 3rd herself. O’Gorman got the 2nd, before an OG, and Roche’s strike made it 5 – 0.

Ellen Molly scored twice on her debut. Lauren Kelly opened the scoring and Vanessa Ogbonna got the 3rd. Bohs got their first ever WNL goal through Chloe Darby in the 78th minute.
Vanessa has been on the show before, she previously joined us to talk about racism in Irish football along with 4 other black people who played football in Ireland. That podcast can be found here.

The Waves got a valuable point in there quest to finish in the top section of the league. Katie Malone opened the scoring for the home team, before Waves equalized shortly after through Katie Malone on her league debut.
We are partnered with DLR Waves for the season in our fundraising and awareness campaign for Suicide or Survive. You can read about it and donate here. We caught up with Graham Kelly and some of his players at a training session, they were excited to see football return.
