Fitzgerald on Irish sevens team

Molly Fitzgerald

Molly Fitzgerald from Kells has been included on the Irish girls u-18 squad for a sevens 'Home Nations 7s' rugby tournament that also involves Scotland, Wales and England.

The tournament will be played on Saturday and Sunday in Edinburgh and Fitzgerald's selection on the team is further evidence of her growing reputation as a talented rugby player. 

This season Fitzgerald emerged as one of the success stories of Navan Rugby Club. She was selected for the Leinster u-18 squad and she's also eligible for that age group next season. 

Fitzgerald who attended Eureka, Kells was also selected for the Leinster sevens team. She usually lines out as a  centre or on the wing where her blistering pace can most utilised. 

With Navan withdrawing their team from the Leinster League last season Fitzgerald often trained on her own and her dedication has paid dividends with the selection on the Irish sevens squad further evidence of her talents. 

Molly's father, John Fitzgerald, has coached in Navan RFC and is a well-known figure in North Meath Rugby Club.
