Irish squad to arrive in Chile on Monday

Ireland's women will arrive in Chile for their WCQ in two groups, the first arriving on Sunday and a second set landing in Santiago on Monday, April 25.

Their flights have been confirmed with Air France and will be the fourth side to arrive at the tournament following the already in situ Chile and Australia while Malaysia are now set to land on Saturday.

Ireland have split the squad into two to facilitate the earliest possible arrival with 12 of the squad and management travelling on Saturday and 11 on Sunday each group arriving at 7.30am the day after they depart.

The FIH have not yet confirmed the changed match schedule once this is released it will be publicised by the Irish Hockey Association.

* The Hook's delegation is currently en route to Chile and will arrive on Thursday morning. As a result, if you have any information, match reports and photos from Saturday's Irish Senior Cup fixtures or the conclusions of your Leinster league, please email me on as my phone is likely to be out of action for most of the next fortnight.
