Smyth receives Ireland call-up

Emma Smyth is the one new name in Gene Muller’s latest Irish senior squad for the Easter weekend series with England, announced on Monday.

She is joined by four Loreto players – Nikki Symmons, Louisa Healy, Lizzie Colvin and Cathy McKean – and UCD duo Roisin Flinn and Lisa Jacob, though the latter must be a major doubt having been carried off in Monday night’s match with Railway.

Mary Goode is the only other Leinster based player while Eimear Cregan is included after her injury problems. She scored on her league comeback against Cork C of I last weekend.

Ireland senior women’s squad: Lauren Barr (Ballymoney), Bridget Cleland (Ballymoney), Emma Clarke (Ulster Elks), Eimear Cregan (Cork Harlequins, capt), Lizzie Colvin (Loreto), Roisin Flinn (UCD), Megan Frazer (Ballymoney), Mary Goode (GK, Bray), Louisa Healy (GK, Loreto), Lisa Jacob (UCD), Shirley McCay (Ulster Elks), Cathy McKean (Loreto), Cliodhna Sargent (Cork Harlequins), Emma Smyth (Railway Union), Emma Stewart (Armagh), Nikki Symmons (Loreto).
