I play lacrosse for Ireland and we will be competing at the European Lacrosse Championships in just over week’s time in Amsterdam.
This will be the first time that the Euros have a tiered group stage and Ireland are in the top division alongside England, The Netherlands, Germany, Finland and Sweden.
We are in the Top 10 in the world rankings after a 9th place finish in the World Championships in 2010. We finished 7th in the last Euros in 2008 and we are hoping to improve on that with a medal-winning finish in the Netherlands..
Training camp starts tomorrow, June 16, with our opening game against current holders England on June 20.
We will be competing alongside the Women’s team who are grouped against England, Austria, The Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland.
It would be really great to get some publicity to help garner some support for both teams ahead of what will hopefully be a successful campaign at a major sports event.
