Dual intercounty star for Clare and Kilmihil native Eimear Considine has been named in the Ireland Women’s Sevens squad to take part in the Emirates Airlines Dubai Rugby Sevens next week (December 3-5).

The Women’s side travel to Dubai as one of the core teams that will participate in the World Sevens Series, having qualified alongside Japan at the Women’s Sevens Dublin qualifying tournament in August. They are grouped with the USA, Canada and Fiji.

Speaking ahead of the Irish squads setting out for Dubai, Anthony Eddy, IRFU Director of Rugby Sevens, said: “The Dubai Sevens is the start of a very important number of months for our Sevens teams. The women have re-qualified for the World Sevens Series and will be testing themselves against the best teams in the world. They are looking forward to the upcoming challenge of the USA, Canada and Fiji.”
