Congratulations to the Irish Women’s Hockey team who have qualified with a game to spare for the Quarter Finals of the Women’s World Cup in London.

Wins over the USA and India, whose combined population is over 2 billion, have propelled the team into the last eight regardless of the result on Sunday against England.

That match has been a complete sell-out since March and will be played in front of 10,000 in the London Olympic Park.

Good luck to the team who have excelled so far and will be the focus of Irish sporting attention for the next few days and who knows for how long…
