Ireland begin their Championships on December 7th against Spain, followed by matches against Germany and Norway on the following two days.
The team have been training in recent weeks for the tournament, after qualifying earlier this year and have been boosted by a new sponsorship deal. Hidden Hearing is Ireland's leading provider of hearing healthcare and will sponsor the team throughout the European Championships.
