Aisling Sullivan formerly of Killester has signed , Aisling played for the DCU College team for 3 years so is no stranger to the DCU style. Becky Woods returns to the squad after a 6 year break.

Add in underage players, Aoife Maguire, Bronagh Power Cassidy, Maeve O Shéaghdha, Nicole Clancy and Rachel Huijsdens, the future looks bright for the squad. The team also includes Enya Brady, Sarah Fitzpatrick and Meagan Connolly all DCU students andwelcomes back Irish Internationals, Fionnuala Toner and Aoife McDermot.

The Club would also like to acknowledge the continued support of DCU Sport and DCU for supporting the scholarship program. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at all the home games this up-coming season.
