The Left Wing: 10 years ago this week, Ireland women's team won their only Grand Slam

As Andy Farrell’s team look to complete a Grand Slam when they play England at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, the Left Wing wants to celebrate another Grand Slam.

t’s 10 years ago this week since the Ireland women’s team won their first Slam. A 6-3 win over Italy in Milan on Paddy’s Day in 2013 saw this group of players do something no Irish women’s team has done before.

So this is a special podcast to celebrate that achievement. Captain of that team Fiona Coghlan, centre Lynne Cantwell and head coach Philip ‘Goose’ Doyle joined Sinéad Kissane to look back on that historic campaign.

On Wednesday, Will and Luke will be joined by Alex Corbisiero and former Irish rugby team sports psychologist, Enda McNulty.

There will then be a team news episode with the latest on the Ireland XV named to face England on Thursday, while the post-match show from the Aviva on Saturday will see Sinéad, Cian and Rud analyse what one hopes will be a historic day in Dublin.

Join us for all the coverage throughout the week on the Left Wing podcast and if you want to get in touch, email your questions and comments to, or contact the team on Twitter @SlatteryWill @lukefitz11 @CianTracey1 @SinéadKissane and @RuaidhriOC.
