IHA announce U-16 Provincial blitz

The IHA today announced that an ESB U16 Provincial Blitz will take place on Sunday, January 4 at Alexandra College, Milltown.

The original ESB U16 Interprovincial tournament which was scheduled for December 6 and 7 was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions and in consultation with the branches a blitz tournament is now being run.

The blitz will see each province playing each other once in a 30 minute match, with all 18 players in each squad eligible for each match.

Commenting on the blitz Chief Executive Angus Kirkland said “It is great that these underage players will have an opportunity to compete representing their provinces which is a huge honour. They will also now have the chance to showcase their talents in front of the Irish U16’s Head Coach, Una McCarthy and her management team who will be in attendance.”
