Raheny are preparing for their first foray into the UEFA Women’s Champions League this summer and are looking to build on a memorable year that saw them crowned national champions for the first time.

Deposed holders Peamount United face a derby match against Shamrock Rovers in their first fixture while Castlebar Celtic host Cork Women’s FC.

The league’s newest members Galway WFC have a home tie against Wexford Youths Women’s AFC in the final fixture of the opening series. The addition of Galway WFC into the league brings the league membership up to eight clubs.

League director Fran Gavin is positive that the Bus Éireann Women’s National League continues to progress. “Last season was a very competitive campaign with a tight title race and a number of clubs making progress,” said Gavin.

“That was proven by the number of young players who progressed from the league into our international squads, including Sue Ronan’s senior international side.

“The addition of Galway WFC is another real positive. The Galway football community has got right behind the new club and they will be a competitive side right from the start playing out of Eamonn Deacy Park.

“The league is entering its third year and it has made gradual progress each season. We started with six clubs and now we are up to eight with the geographical spread continuing.”

Sunday, 25th August 2013 (2.00pm)

Castlebar Celtic v Cork Women’s FC
