All systems go for 2nd Hockey International

Game 2 of the Ireland – Netherlands International series takes place tonight in the Mardyke.

Ireland were out on the training pitch early this morning as they aim to avenge Monday nights 7-2 defeat.


Having flown into cork at 1 am on Monday night fatigue may have been a factor in a third quarter collapse which was the major difference between the sides in the end.

Tonight will still be a major test for the Green Machine as the dutch will want to impress their manager before he picks his 21 man squad for the Olympics.

An even bigger crowd is expected for tonights game so get here early to sample to atmosphere.

Ireland V Netherlands 7pm at the Mardyke in UCC.
