Ireland warm favourites to win Senior Home Internationals on home turf

Ireland, with home advantage, are warm favourites to win the Seniors Home Internationals, which get underway at Rosslare today.
Team captain Sean O’Leary (Mahon) can call on two members of his European championship- winning side for the matches against England, Scotland and Wales.

Portmarnock’s Adrian Morrow secured the winning point against Denmark in the European final and returns to the fold alongside Tramore’s John Mitchell as Ireland bid to regain the Seniors Home Internationals having relinquished the crown in 2016.
Billy Donlon (Birr), Barry O’Leary (Greystones) and Liam Halpin (Westport) have been retained from last year’s side with Nigel Duke (Killiney) with Hugh Smyth (Mourne) completing Ireland’s seven-man line-up. Barry Doyle (Carlow) is the team manager.
