Hekp Ireland Lacrosse - World Indoor Lacrosse Championships 2011

It's a sad reality that some teams in many sports don't have the money to get themselves to a world championship when they've qualified.
Add Ireland's national indoor lacrosse team to that list.
Here's a post from Conor Walsh, a member of Ireland's national indoor lacrosse team.Hopefully if the word spreads, these guys will get a chance to compete in Prague.

As you may know, I am playing lacrosse for Ireland in the World Cup which is coming up this May in Prague. The Ireland Lacrosse team is 100% player funded which makes representing Ireland, an expensive affair.
This year is no different. It will cost each athlete between €1600 – €1800 to represent their country in the 2011 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships in Prague, Czech Republic held May 21st-28th.
