Sligo Speed Demon in Ireland Sevens Squad

Sligo fullback Jacqui Mulligan joins two other Connacht representatives in an IRFU Womens Sevens training squad with designs on international honours and Olympic medals.

Mulligan was one among six Connacht players invited to return for further screening after an inter-provincial tournament, Saturday April 7. The Connacht squad which beat both Leinster and Ulster (and lost by a try to a UK-based Exiles selection) comprised Nicole Fowley, Mulligan, Grainne Blount, Niamh Connolly and Leona Moran of Sligo; Grainne Egan, Sorcha Ni Chadhain and Becky McPhilbin of Galwegians, Amy O’Callaghan of Highfield, Cork, and Ali Miller of Portlaoise (both with prior representative ties to Connacht). 

Miller, Egan, Mulligan, Fowley and Blount were earmarked for further screening, and Miller, Mulligan and Jes’ College graduate, Connacht and Six Nations superstar, and UK Exile Claire Molloy made the final cull.
