TWO OF IRELAND’S Hockey Women’s World Cup 2022 Pool A games will be broadcast live on the RTÉ News Channel, the national broadcaster confirmed today.

RTÉ had come under fire for their lack of coverage of the tournament ahead of the Green Army’s opener against hosts Netherlands on Saturday, a repeat of the 2018 World Cup final.

“Ireland playing in a World Cup should not be hidden from the sporting public,” as Sinéad Kissane wrote in the Irish Independent.

While the Dutch clash won’t be shown, the 2018 silver medallists’ next Pool A meetings with Chile and Germany will. Sean Dancer’s side face Chile on Tuesday, 5 July [1pm] and Germany on Wednesday 6th [5.30pm].

All three games take place at Wagener Stadium, Amsterdam.

RTÉ Sport confirmed that coverage of Ireland’s games beyond the group stages is subject to confirmation at the conclusion of the group stage.
