Head Coach Jason Donohue gave the latest batch of young Irish talent their U15 International debuts against Poland in Kolobrzeg this Tuesday afternoon. The fledglings gave a polished first half performance and scored the only goal through Ben Quinn after twenty five minutes. The hosts provided a stiffer challenge in the second half but Ireland stayed calm and resilient under pressure and fully deserved their victory.
The two sides will meet again at 11am on Thursday morning in Ploty.
