The Irish Hurling/Shinty senior team squad has been confirmed ahead of the side’s second one-off test with Scotland on November 21 with 2015 GAA/GPA Opel All-Star Hurler of the Year TJ Reid included in the panel of eighteen.
Managers Geoff Lynskey (Galway minors) and Gregory O’Kane (Antrim) will be keen for a reversal of fortunes following the 3-15 to 2-08 defeat to Scotland in Inverness last month.
The second game in the 2015 Senior Hurling/Shinty International Series is a stand-alone game, a change from last year’s two-legged aggregate format, and will throw-in in Croke Park at 4.35pm prior to the EirGrid International Rules game between Ireland and Australia (7pm).
The pairing of Maurice Shanahan and TJ Reid in the side should be intesting, Shanahan having been named in the side that travelled to Scotland last month but missing out through injury.
Tickets for the game priced at €25 for adults and €5 for juveniles. Tickets are available on GAA.ie/tickets and from selected SuperValu and Centra stores nationwide. Live coverage of the Hurling/Shinty international will be broadcast on RTÉ2 from 4.25pm.
