Team Éire Set to Compete at 2024 Heritage Cup

Team Éire Set to Compete at 2024 Heritage Cup

DUBLIN, IRELAND – Team Éire will be competing in the eighth-annual Heritage Cup Tournament, 24-27 May 2024 at Haverford College in Haverford, PA, USA. Heritage Cup is held in conjunction with the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Final Four, and is primarily an opportunity for USA-based athletes to contribute to the development of international lacrosse by raising awareness, funds and participating in equipment drives for their ancestral homelands.

The Éire Programme was established to help develop the Ireland Lacrosse National Teams. Éire teams are entered into events as a means for both National Team and non-national team players to get more experience, playing time, and coaching in non-World Lacrosse or European Lacrosse events. Eligibility for the Éire team is more flexible than for the Irish National Teams, as non-passport holders are welcomed (see National Team Vision (Player Eligibility & Selection Policy for more information).

Éire teams will be entered into the following divisions at Heritage Cup: Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Boy’s U-19, Boy’s U-15 and Boy’s U-13. With the 2025 Men’s European Championship and the 2025 Men’s U20 World Championship on the horizon, our Men’s National Programme will be utilizing the Heritage Cup as a selection event for eligible players on the Boy’s U-19 and Men’s Open Team. The Women’s National Programme will evaluate eligible individuals for addition to the National Player Pool.

Members of the Irish National Team (players and staff) will be interacting with their younger counterparts throughout the long weekend, conducting clinics, sharing meals, and supporting each other at their games. Player registration and check-in is at Haverford College on Friday, 24 May, and the program will run through the NCAA Championship Game on Monday, 27 May, at approximately 3pm. All players are required to stay with the team at Haverford College. Parents who are in the area are welcome to join the group for select meals and events (to be advised).
