Local Beechlawn Girl and Irish international Beibhinn Parsons has been named Guinness Rugby Writers Women’s Player of the Year after an outstanding breakthrough season where she was instrumental to her team contributing three tries to the team during Irelands' 2020 Six Nations run.
Rising through Ballinasloe Rugby Club Beibhinn became Irelands youngest ever international, earning her first cap at the age of 16 and has her whole career ahead of her still only 19 years old.
“Winning this Rugby Writers of Ireland Player of the Year award is a real ‘pinch me’ moment. To follow in the footsteps of incredible players like Ciara Griffin, Claire Molloy and Sene Naoupu is just incredible! To even be nominated for an award of this calibre has exceeded all my expectations. I would have never considered myself to be in the same bracket of players with those women”, stated an excited Beibhinn.
