Limerick’s Claire O’Riordan named in Ireland’s World Cup Squad

The squad was announced this afternoon with Ireland jetting off for the tournament in Australia next month.

Newcastle West native Claire O’Riordan has been included in the Irish Women’s National Team for the World Cup in Australia next month.

The Celtic star is one of 23 selected for the tournament where Ireland will kick off their campaign against the hosts in Sydney on July 20.

O’Riordan did her squad chances no harm just last week when she netted her first ever international goal in the 3-2 win over Zambia in Tallaght.

The final squad will travel to Australia on Friday, July 7, the day after their final preparation on home soil against France in Tallaght Stadium. Ireland will face Canada in their second game before rounding out the group against Nigeria.

The squad selection is subject to change should any injuries occur in advance of the FIFA deadline on July 10.

Three training players will also accompany the squad for the duration of the tournament but will not be eligible for selection after the FIFA deadline.

Vera Pauw’s squad will be based in Brisbane for their time at the World Cup
