Greenfields players selected for Irish Hockey Trials.

November 8, 2018

Following the U16 & U18 Interprovincial Tournaments earlier this month, a total of 15 players from Connacht have been selected to attend Irish trials.  The sessions will be held on a monthly basis, & the squads, when finally selected, will participate in the European Youth Nations Championships.

This competition alternates every second year between the U16 & U18 age level  The U18 competition was held in Belgium, in July 2009.  The U16 European Youth Nations championship will be held in Barcelona in July 2010.

The Home Nations competition is the alternative event for those not involved in the EuroHockey Youth Nations Championships.  In 2010, it is the turn of the U18’s at the Home Nations, which pits Ireland against England, Scotland & Wales.

Four Greenfields players have been called to Irish Trials, three at U18 level: Alison Ryan, Dora Gorman & Katie Codyre, and at U16 level, former Greenfields member, (now with Alexandra College), Gráinne Mulkerrin.

Wishing you all the best of luck at the trials.
