|The Republic of Ireland Women’s Under-16s will travel to Wales for two international friendly games this month.|
Head Coach Tom Elmes has assembled a strong group of players for what should be two tough tests as work continues on their development.
Six players called in were part of the Ireland Women’s Under-17 squad who won their three UEFA Women’s Under-17 European Championship qualifiers in Norway last month.
The majority of players in the squad were recently involved in EA SPORTS Women’s Under-17 National Underage League Finals, with Treaty United winning the League and Shelbourne claiming the Shield, while Cork City will take on Peamount United in the Cup.
