Coach Gareth Borland has named the Irish Under 18 squad along with 2 reserves who will take part in this summers 6 Nations tournament hosted in Nottingham from July 17th – 23rd.

Having trained with a large development panel all the players have made significant improvements to their game and physical condition over the last 9 months.

There were some difficult decisions to make in the final selection but we feel we have a great group of talented, highly versatile players.

Five of the squad are able to draw on their experiences from last years Europeans in Cork, while six others will be available for selection for next years Europeans in Santander.

We are grateful to Three Rock Rovers, Banbridge and Lisnagarvey for the use of their facilities while also providing us with opposition, along with Monkstown, in practise games.

As a squad we are looking forward to the upcoming tournament which will see us play against

Spain – July 17th

Netherlands – July 18th

Germany – July 20th

Belgium – July 22nd

England – July 23rd
