Roisin Upton and Irish Hockey side set for historic evening

The Irish Hockey team will be hoping to continue their remarkable World Cup campaign this evening.

Former Crescent College Comprehensive and Catholic Institute star Roisin Upton has been an integral member of the squad throughout the pool stages helping Ireland to reach their first ever World Cup quarter-final.

Spain await the winners of their historic quarter final against India in London.

Ireland beat the same opponents 1-0 last week to top their group and secure their place in the last 8 for the very first time.

Graham Shaw’s side cam into the tournament as the second lowest ranked side (16th) but were the first side to qualify for the knockout stages following wins in their opening two games against USA and India.

The game will be televised live on BT Sport and RTE at 6 o’clock.
