Reply Jen says: September 13, 2011 at 1:57 pm Well done Helen!! just to make a point though! It’s defo not 20 years since the last Irish womens team. I was on one of the last national teams, it was about 1996 or 1997. Reply itowa says: September 13, 2011 at 2:57 pm Thanks for your comment Jenny! Blame me as it was I who passed that information on to Helen. Nobody I asked could give me an exact year. It would be great if you could find out exactly when it was and where it was and how they got on. I think Ross Rangers won bronze at some stage? Thanks Donal Reply Jen says: September 13, 2011 at 4:18 pm No problem Donal! I’ll have to find out the rest of the details but from what i remember it was a mix of Coolock and Ross Rangers for Ireland that won the bronze, pulling in Mosney, that would have been around 18 or 20 years ago. I know Coolock came 4th in the clubs that year too. Trying to remember the last time i pulled for Ireland, think it might have been in Jersey for the outdoor and Carlow for the indoor. Will have to search for some details on the exact years. I know that Coolock had members on the Irish teams from 1990 on, every year. Maybe the Association has some details or records? I’ll pass on any info i can find!!! Reply Grainne says: September 13, 2011 at 5:36 pm Ah well done Helen – that is pure class and thanks Donal for posting this so soon.
