About this fundraiser:
Last summer, Ireland Lacrosse, the governing body of the sport of lacrosse in Ireland, held its trials (tryouts) on Long Island, in Boston and Dublin in preparation for the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships & Festival taking place in Netanyah, Israel, this July. This is the premier international field lacrosse championship which takes place only every four years. A pool of over 200 talented players, both Irish born and of Irish decent, tried out for selection to the Irish National Lacrosse Program at these events in the US and in Ireland.
After a lengthy selection process, two teams were rostered, the 23-man Team Ireland Senior National Team and the 20-man Ireland National Development Team, Team Eire.
The Irish National Program is stronger than it ever has been and looks to continue to climb the international rankings this July. Both the Senior National Team and the Development Team will travel to Netanya, Israel to compete in the World Lacrosse Championships and Festival Tournament respectively.
In preparation for the World Lacrosse Championships (12-21 July 2018), players from both WLC teams (and other players in the Ireland Lacrosse Player Pool) will train and compete in two tournaments: The Nick Kehoe International (formerly named the British National Championships) on May 5-6 in Manchester, UK and the Heritage Cup, a "friendly" international tournament in Providence, RI that will be attended by 12 international teams over Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-27).
