The Wolfhounds team lift the Celtic Challenge Cup 24/2/2024

Celtic Challenge Champions Crowned in Belfast


This weekend saw the crowning of 2023/24 Celtic Challenge Champions, the Irish Wolfhounds.

Relishing the newly expanded structure, the Wolfhounds made the most of the 8-Round Competition, remaining undefeated in their inaugural season finishing off their stellar season with a 47-26 win against fellow Irish side the Clovers. The newly established side comprising of mainly Leinster and Ulster players was overseen by Neill Alcorn.

Speaking after the game, Alcorn said:

“It’s a huge credit to the Players. The hard work they’ve shown over the past few months has paid off, both results and getting to take home the Celtic Challenge trophy this season. I can’t wait to see some of them take their opportunity in the upcoming Guinness Women’s 6 Nations.”

The Trophy presented to the Champions of this year’s Celtic Challenge Competition is commonly known as a quaich.

A Celtic tradition, the quaich is often referred to as the friendship cup, used to offer a welcoming drink to visitors. The Celtic Challenge Trophy has been commissioned with the simplicity of the quaich design in mind. Silver plated it is embellished with Celtic bands which draw together all the teams competing in the Celtic Challenge.
