Ireland Lacrosse Roster for WILC Ready to Head West

Author’s Note: Throughout the summer of 2015 we will be working with our contacts around the globe to put together the best previews of each country participating in the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships. If you would like to share information regarding the progress of your nation’s programs, please feel free to drop us a line!

Ready to make another run at World Indoor Lacrosse Championship gold, team Ireland has been narrowed down and their focus is growing on making a world-class showing in Syracuse in September.

Highlighting the roster are NLL all-stars Stephen Keogh of the Rochester Knighthawks and Andrew McBride of the Calgary Roughnecks. Keogh is no stranger to making history in the famous Carrier Dome, the location of the Bronze and Gold Medal games. In 2011, Keogh connected with the Iroquois Nationals’ Jeremy Thompson to score the double OT winner against rival Johns Hopkins.

This will be the 3rd time that Ireland will compete in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. The team will be desperately looking to improve on their 0-3 performance in Halifax 2007 and Prague 2011.
