Ahead of her trip to the qualifiers, Mikal O’Boyle, who is the team’s vice-captain said: “I am very excited to be playing with this strong group of girls. After Covid curtailed our competitive matches for so long it will be great to see how far our limits can be pushed and taking on the challenge of overcoming the challenges set by the best players from other countries in pursuit of European qualification.

“We mean to uphold our team vision; “bí cróga, bí spreagúil, belong!”
