The 22-year-old UL Bohs center could come into the starting XV this weekend. Ireland’s last game was a special one for the entire squad because they earned their first victory of the Six Nations, but also because the team played it in front of an excited crowd at Musgrave Park in Cork.
The venue was even more memorable for Enya Breen, who came off as a substitute for Ireland in the second half.
Enya Breen is a Cork native who started playing rugby with the minis in Carrigaline RFC before her family moved out to Skibbereen in her youth translated to going back to Bantry Bay RFC.
“It was unbelievable,” says Breen of getting to play in Cork. “I grew up going to Musgrave Park, down to Munster games.
“I’d played there in a Munster jersey before, but it was exceptional stepping out in an Irish jersey to play an international Test there in front of family and friends. It was a massive occasion and great to be a part of it.”
Despite being used as a substitute in this Six Nations, 12-times capped,, Breen is in line for her first championship start on Sunday against England.
