Boyle names squad for WU16 Development Tournament
The Irish girls will meet their counterparts from Austria, Denmark and Czech Republic over four days. Their first fixture is against the Czechs this Friday at Gannon Park, Malahide (2.00pm).
Ireland will then meet the Austrians on Saturday at Home Farm FC’s Whitehall (4.00pm) then complete the tournament against the Danes on Monday at Gannon Park (11.00am).
Boyle’s side beat Northern Ireland 1-0 in a preparation game in Oriel Park last month so they will enter the tournament this week in positive form.
