Tallaght man Shaw leads Ireland to Euro glory!


Tallaght man Graham Shaw has led the Ireland Senior Women’s Hockey team to European Glory after they were crowned Eurohockey Championship II winners.

The women were crowned champions following an impressive 5-0 victory over the Czech Republic in Prague and will now return to the top table in European hockey. Shaw had taken charge of the team following a very successful period under Darren Smith, who stood down following the bitter disappointment of missing out on Olympic qualification when they lost a penalty shootout in the World League Round Three quarter final to China.

Shaw has taken the reigns effortlessly and will now see his side return to the top tier of European Championships in 2017.
