WINS for Leinster over Munster and Connacht over Ulster paves the way for the semi-finals of this season’s Women’s interprovincial championship. Leinster will play Ulster and Connacht will be taking on Munster.
Leinster came away from IIP in Cork with a 13-20 victory while Connacht pipped Ulster by a single point, 20-19 in Belfast.
