The Women’s All Ireland League 2019-20

The 2019-20 Women’s All Ireland League was cancelled after 12 rounds due to the coronavirus pandemic. This was confirmed by the IRFU on 19th March with the games governing body stating:

There will be no league or cup winners in any competition organised at a national level including the Energia All-Ireland Leagues, Energia Women’s All-Ireland Cup and the Energia Bateman Cup.

The planned expansion of the Energia Women’s All-Ireland League for the 2020/21 season remains in place.

The Front Row Union reacted quickly to bring the season to some sort of completion with online voting and virtual team challenges that ended with UL Bohemian being crowned Virtual Champions. UL Bohemian also picked up our Team of the Season award for their undefeated season.

We also held a poll for The Front Row Union Dream Team for the first time, a competition that registered over 17,000 votes.
