The weather was the dominant player in the Irish polocrosse season of 2007 with many tournaments canceled due to waterlogged pitches, cut back to single day events, or played on sand. However following a creditable performance at the World Cup in Australia, Ireland hosted a successful test series against the American U21 team, and won both matches decisively.
A number of Irelandâ€™s emerging players â€“ James Smyth, Seb Chambers, and Tara Power â€“ had played in the World Cup and showed the benefit of their international experience. Closing the season the National Championships, hosted in Dublin in August, was won for the first time by Limerick. Richie Collins (captain) played alongside Sarah Fennessy and Eoin Oâ€™Leary, with Scott Oâ€™Hallorahan, Aidan Oâ€™Leary, and Raymond Barron. Excellent play from Barron and Kelly, both still eligible to play as Juniors, show that these two are names to watch out for in the future.
