In addition to training with DWPC, Niamh Moloney has regularly trained and played throughout 2023 with the Great Britain Senior women squad. Niamh has undertaken extensive travel to attend training camps in England and abroad along with international tournaments against some of the best National Teams in Europe. This has taken a significant personal commitment of time and expense as the squads have very limited funding support. Her hard work, dedication and commitment paid off with Niamh being selected for the 13-player team that ultimately competed at the 2024 European Championships in early Jan 2024. Outstanding results at the Europeans ensured qualification at the 2024 World Championship in Doha, first time in 11 years. A significant achievement for Great Britain Senior women and finishing 11th which bettered the previous performance.
