2015 National Indoor Team

Dublin, Ireland……Ireland Lacrosse today announced the 23 player squad that will represent Ireland in the 2015 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Indoor Lacrosse Championships.  The WILC will be hosted by the Iroquois Nationals at Onondaga Nation (near Syracuse), and Buffalo New York, USA  18-26 September 2015.  The 2015 Ireland National Indoor Lacrosse Team will once again be lead by Head Coach Jeff Dowling, assisted by Tom Howe and Geoff (Abe) Conn.  “After seeing the increase in talent level at our tryout camp in October from where it was 4 years ago”, says Dowling, “we are extremely encouraged about our prospects at the 2015 World Games.  We had to make some tough decisions at every position and truly believe that we will be a much more balanced team than we were in 2011.  Adding players like Stephen and Andrew that compete at the highest level of our sport will be a big boost for our players and we expect that the growth of the sport in Ireland will also be greatly influenced by their participation.”

      Great video as mentioned Tom, and congrats to all on the roster. Like the infusion of Irish-Canadian talent! Good luck guys! If you want inspiration watch John Grant, Jr.’s gamewinner for Colorado the other night. – TF
