The IRFU’s head of women’s performance and pathways Gillian McDarby has confirmed that Meath star Vikki Wall has been contracted to the Ireland 7s set-up since last month.
With the team currently gearing up for next year’s Olympics, two-time All-Ireland winner Wall is hoping to play in Paris having switched from her recent stint with North Melbourne in the AFL to the oval ball game.
Speaking to media today (Thursday), McDarby confirmed that the Dunboyne will see game time in the coming months ahead of the team’s participation in World Series.
“Vikki’s dream is to go to the Olympics,” said McDarby. “She is making great progress and she will get exposed to game time now in development competitions in Elche and Marcoussis.
“We will start to monitor her progress there and whether we bring her into the World Series set-up in Dubai [in December].”
