Big crowd expected at Ashbourne

Spectators attending tonight’s women’s rugby international between Ireland and Wales at Ashbourne will be able to purchase tickets at the entrance to the ground.
A big crowd is expected to show up for what promises to be a crunching encounter between the two nations.
However of the three local players in the Irish set up only one, Marie Louise Reilly, will start and earn her 27th cap.  
Jackie Shiels who helped Ireland to a resounding 59-0 win over Scotland last weekend has dropped back to the bench for tonight’s game where she will be joined by Grace Davitt.
Both Shiels, who has nine caps to her name and Davitt, who has made 48 appearances in the green to-date, are likely to be involved at some stage of the game tonight especially if the home team are struggling to make an impact.
Tickets prices are as follows: adult €10; student/child €5; cars/buses of more than four people, €5 per person.
