SPARC South Dublin clinic lead Eamon O'Reilly was delighted to be once again involved with the Irish International Rules team for 2017. The squad have endured 7 hard weeks preparing for the first test next Sunday morning (530am Irish time). This year the team is captained by Aiden O'Shea and managed by Joe Kernan.

Speaking about his involvement, Eamon has said “ It is always a great honour to be involved with any individuals at the top of their game representing their country. The team is focussed and determined to perform well in Australia, bringing the Cormac McAnallen cup back with them in 3 weeks."

Eamon also added (with absolutely no bias!) “ It is great to see my fellow county man Killian Clarke pull on the Irish shirt and I have absolutely no doubt he will do his club Shercock and Cavan proud over there”.  This year Eamon can’t make the trip due to the imminent arrival in his own house but is really looking forward to watching both the tests over the coming weeks.
