McCabe proud to join WNT 50-cap club

Katie McCabe joined an exclusive club of Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team players by reaching 50 caps after lining out in the narrow loss to Belgium last Sunday.
11th Apr 2021

First capped whilst playing for Raheny United in the Women’s National League, McCabe got her debut run-out in an Istria Cup game against Hungary and also earned caps during spells at Shelbourne and Arsenal.

Appointed as captain in 2017, the Dubliner has worn the armband for 26 consecutive games and the 25-year-old remains as determined as ever to continue adding to her impressive run of games.

McCabe said: “I’m very proud to reach 50 senior caps with the Republic of Ireland. I cannot describe the pride that I have in representing my country and it is something that I will never take for granted.

“Of course, I have to thank all of the people who helped me to reach this point. The different managers – Sue Ronan, Colin Bell, Tom O’Connor and Vera Pauw – all of the backroom staff through the years, every one of my team-mates…past and present, and the Irish supporters who have been incredible throughout my international career to date.

“I’d also like to pay tribute to all of the coaches who have been a positive influence on my development, from Grassroots through to the Women’s National League and underage international teams. It’s important to never forget the confidence that they had in me long before I ever made it to senior level.

“Even though 50 caps is a significant milestone, I feel like I have so much more to give to the Ireland senior team. We will continue with our preparations for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup and that is something that really motivates me because being part of the first Ireland team to qualify for a major tournament is the dream that I want to achieve more than anything else.”
