Huge Rovers crew set to shine at Olympic Games

A huge congratulations to Ben Johnson, Daragh Walsh and Ben Walker who have all been named in the Irish Olympic squad of 16 players for Paris next month along with Ali Empey and Jaime Carr who are both travelling reserves for the event.

An incredible achievement for each of them personally and also for us as a club to have so many involved with such close club ties!

They will join umpire Ali Keogh at the Games to make sure Rovers are represented on the highest stage of the game!

We wish them well for the Games while also taking the opportunity to also pay tribute to Luke Madeley who has been a pivotal figure in the team’s qualification before an injury issue curtailed his involvement.

Ireland’s qualification was always built around a wider squad effort, raising standards across the board over the past few years in which Mark Samuel and Conor Empey were among those to make key contributions along the road to Paris!
