UL Bohemian RFC are delighted to announce that former Irish International, Munster and UL
Bohemian player Niamh Briggs has been appointed to the position of Head Coach to the Senior
Women’s Team for 2021/2022.
“Briggsy” has a record that speaks for itself. Having joined UL Bohemian RFC in 2009 coming from Clonmel RFC, she quickly became a key player. Niamh made history in 2013 when she was part of the grand slam winning Irish team for the 6 Nations, before then going on to captain the team to 6 Nations success again in 2015. Niamh brings a wealth of experience on the field as a player, and in more recent years in a coaching capacity with UL Bohemian RFC and Munster Rugby . We are excited that Niamh has taken the role for this coming season and is a huge boost to our club.
Cathal Sheridan UL Bohemian RFC Director of Rugby said,
“We’re thrilled that Niamh has accepted our offer to become Head Coach. Niamh is a household
name in Irish sport, she has one of the best rugby brains around, and we are very fortunate to have
her overseeing the next generation of players through the club. Obviously her experience on and off
the pitch at the pinnacle of Irish Rugby over the last decade speaks for itself, but the most exciting
part for us is her vision on where she wants to bring us to in the next few years.”
Niamh’s appointment comes at a crucial time where there are huge opportunities for the
development of the elite player pathways in Munster and Ireland.
All the best Briggsy
