An Erris native has been included in the Ireland U18 women’s rugby squad.
An extended Ireland U18 Women’s 7s squad of 22 players, supported by Pwc, has been named to commence preparation for the Rugby Europe U18 Women’s 7s Championships in Prague on July 23rd and 24th.
The squad will take part in two weekend camps at the IRFU’s high Performance Centre in Dublin on the weekends of the June 18th and 19th and 25th and 26th before a reduced squad will travel to France for a two day camp at Marcoussis (2-3 July), the FFR’s training facility where they will train against their French counterparts.
There will be two further one day camps in July (10 & 17) before the squad is finalised to travel to Prague for the Rugby Europe Championships.
Geesala native Clara Barrett has been selected alongside three fellow Connacht players – Molly Boote, Eabha Nic Dhonnacha, and Hannah Clark.
Barrett is one 12 of the players selected for the training squad that were involved earlier this year in the U18 Women’s Six Nations Festival in Edinburgh.
