    • Sports

Two countries with strong hockey ties look to begin new legacies of success in the summer sport by leveraging their history and history-making into participation and support back home. 

We’re joined by Elizabeth Murphy, who is not only part of the first Irish women’s field hockey team at the Olympics, her squad is the first female Olympic team of any kind for the Emerald Isle!
