Selection events for these two Irish women’s national teams will be held in both Ireland and the USA in 2018.

      Please could you let me know the age criteria for the U19 World championships in 2019. What is the cutoff DOB for being classed as u19? Thanks

    • Michael Kennedy


      Players must be born on or between 1 September 1999 and 31 July 2004 to be eligible for the Irish U19 team due to compete in the 2019 World U19 Championships. Age eligibility rules and dates are set by the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL).

      Have any further details been issued yet for the trials this weekend? Thank you

    • Michael Kennedy


      An email from National Teams Director John Cavanaugh was issued to all registered player-candidates yesterday. This contains all relevant information for the tryout in Dublin this coming weekend.

    • Lauren


      Hi there, i registered for the 2019 Women’s National team tryout in Rye, New York in August, and i was wondering if there was any way to confirm that I had been registered for this event.

    • Michael Kennedy


      Hi Lauren – yes we can confirm that you are fully registered and paid up for the women’s tryout in Rye, New York on 3-5 August. Further information will be provided to player-candidates closer to the date. We note from your registration form that you do not have an Irish passport (you have maternal grandparents born in Ireland) – we would advise you to continue working on getting your Irish passport. You do not need to have it in advance of the tryout, but your possible selection for the team will depend on it.

    • Jane Andrews


      Hi Michael, Thank you for the email advising that Madeline Andrews had not yet completed the tryout card. She has submitted it today. Can you please confirm that you have all necessary paperwork for the tryout? Thank you for your assistance. Jane

    • Michael Kennedy


      Hi Jane – yes, we got Madeline’s registration form. She’s all set!
