Overview: Corinthian have been through some trying times over recent years with numbers moving on but, this season, whilst they have lost a few, they have been encouraged by a large rise in player numbers in their senior teams. It has added to the intensity at training and so they are looking to getting stuck into the new season.

Carol McGowan’s return from injury will be a big boost for the Whitechurch Park club to lend her skills and experience. Lauren McGrane and Alanah Quinsey come back into the fold after spells with UCD between the firsts and second teams. Speedster Sarah Torrans moves to the other end of Rathfarnham to play EYHL with Loreto while Alanah Carragher has gone to Rathgar but the Reds will be hoping to be competitive this season and on an upward trajectory.
