World Cup Update

November 8, 2018

Dora OGorman will shortly be on her way home from Trinidad and Tobago to join the Connaught U18 Hockey squad for the interprovincals.  The Irish U17 Soccer team (Dora is the Captain) were narrowly defeated by 2 to 1 in the quarter finals against Japan.

The Japanese only just managed to see off a brave Republic of Ireland side on Friday night, winning out 2-1 in a tense and even encounter. The Irish battled with everything they had and hauled themselves back from a first-half deficit, only for the outstanding Kumi Yokoyama to seal victory with her fifth goal of the finals. The Japanese now move on to meet Korea DPR in the last four.

Well done to the Irish girls.
