Railway Union are on the rise in Leinster Rugby’s Junior Leagues. On Sunday they secured the Division 2b title with a hard fought one point win away to Edenderry making amens for their only league loss at home to the Offaly men earlier this season.
The side coached by Keith Sothern and Jack Hanratty delivered in fine style this season starting with four wins to build a lead and holding off a challenge from strong sides in North Kildare and Edenderry as well as overcoming a promising Arklow side.
The high point for the Park Avenue based side in Leinster Junior rugby came in 1997 when they won promotion to the top flight, they lasted there for two seasons before dropping down to the second tier again and eventually down through the leagues.
They’ll be back in the third tier next season and are looking up from there with a strong senior structure and a strong under 21 side.
Elsewhere on Sunday, Guinness got back to winning ways with a home win over an improved Swords.
