Ireland welcome the world number two, The Netherlands, to Cork next week for two friendlies in the lead up to Rio 2016. Ireland will be coming off the back of a grueling 5 game tournament in Valencia therefore almost matching the games to days ratio they are likely to have in Rio. The squad currently has 3 Munster players involved in John Jermyn, Conor Harte and David Harte. With only 18 places on the plane to Rio (2 as reserves) it is all to play for during the Cork series.
This is a once in a lifetime chance to see two of the best teams in the world go head to head in Munster. Tickets are available on the gate or from hockey.ie (â¬15 adults / â¬5 kids).
