This weekend, the Irish Amputee Football Association is holding a national team training camp in Limerick.   The team was in training yesterday and this morning, with a report on Facebook that, “All squad members working hard and it’s great to have some new faces in camp.”

This camp was held in advance of an international friendly against Italy in March.  Italy is currently ranked ninth in the world.  In late January, the team got back together for their first training camp of the year in Dublin, at the  National Sports Campus, Abbotstown.

 

The team is based at the University of Limerick, and uses the football pitches on the university’s North Campus.  They are actively trying to grow the sport in Ireland, and are recruiting new players to the game with the goal of getting them ready to represent Ireland on an international level.
