LOUISE Galvin is the only Limerick club player named after Ireland Women’s 7s Coach Stan McDowell announced the 13-player squad ahead of this weekend’s Rugby Europe 7s Grand Prix in Marcoussis, France.
Lucy Mulhall returns to captain the side in the first round of the Grand Prix Series, which serves as the seeding tournament for the European Olympic Qualifier which takes place in Kazan, Russia on the 13th-14th July.
Ireland’s Pool C opponents on Day 1 are Scotland, Italy and Spain.
Speaking ahead of the weekend’s action, McDowell said;
“It’s set to be a very competitive tournament in Marcoussis, with all the teams involved aware of the Olympic Qualification seedings ahead of Kazan.
The squad have been aware of the significance of this tournament for some time and I am sure they have real focus on delivering a good performance this weekend.”
The tournament, which will be live streamed on, is the first of two tournaments that make up the Rugby Europe Grand Prix Series. The second leg takes place in Kharkiv, Ukraine on the 20th and 21st July (the weekend after the Olympic Qualifier).
