      I’m highly skilled in playing and coaching box lacrosse and I’m huge into my irish heritage my great grand father came to peterborough ontario from Tipperary in 1882 so I’m not eligible to play but mutual skill set would help the team be successful. Thank you

      Hi there,
      I completed my registration form for the 2016 Irish Men’s Senior National Team Tryouts about a week ago as well as emailing but haven’t got a reply yet (not sure if my email went through). However, when I went to pay pal to pay the tryout fee, pay pal said wasn’t a valid email address. Therefore, just wondering if it is possible to get a different address to pay the fee or I can send you my banking information for a bank transfer.
      Thank you,
      Brendan Farrell

      To whom this may concern,

      I have been trying to get in touch with people because I have registered for ireland lacrosse and for the men’s national team tryouts and have not received any confirmation emails or anything. I did register before October 1st. Is there someone to let me know my registration went through and so did my payment. I was also looking for a hotel as the ones on the site are all booked. If someone could get back to me that would be great.

      Thank you
      Kevin Mahon
