Niamh Briggs will lead Ireland into the 2015 Women’s Six Nations Championship after being named as Captain by Anthony Eddy, Director of Sevens and Women’s Rugby.

The County Waterford native, who has 45 international caps, made her debut for Ireland against Italy in the 2008 RBS 6 Nations. Niamh is a member of An Garda Síochána based in Limerick City.

Speaking on her appointment, Briggs said “It’s a massive privilege to represent your country at any level, but to Captain your country is a great honour and I was delighted to be asked.”

“It’s a hugely proud moment for me and for my family who have been great support throughout my career”

“To follow in the footsteps of an unbelievable leader in Fiona Coghlan is a fantastic honour and I look forward to captaining this great squad.”

Speaking on his selection, Eddy said “There has been a lot of change in the women’s set-up, with several uncapped players and a new coaching team. Niamh’s experience, at the highest level will bring a continuity of leadership within the squad.”
