The draw for the 2019 European hockey championships has taken place with the Irish women’s team set to face off against England once again.
Graham Shaw’s side were narrow losers to their neighbours in the group stages of the World Cup but the result was futile as Ireland had already qualified for the knock out stages before going on to claim a historic final spot.
Ireland will begin their campaign on August 18 with that fixture before facing Belarus and Germany later in the week.
Meanwhile the men’s side will take on the Netherlands first on August 17 with fixtures against Scotland and Germany to follow.
