Team Ireland in Dungarvan



Team Ireland will finish up their training camp with Russia at the Dungarvan Sports Centre in Waterford tonight, February 4th.

Both nations have a test match lined up for this evening before a virtual new Irish squad resume training with the visitors from tomorrow on.

Michael Nevin and World and European medallist James McGivern, Eamer Coughlan and Patrick Donovan are included in the second Irish panel ahead of a test match on February 10th.

Nevin completed a unique hat-trick last year after he added a European Youth gold to his European Junior and European Schoolboy titles.

Aaron McKenna and Brian Kennedy will remain in training camp with the Irish side in Dungarvan.

Irish head coach Billy McClean said that the training camp with a world class Russian side is progressing exceptionally well.
