THE Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has joined with the Taoiseach and the President of Ireland in congratulating the Ireland Ladies Hockey squad - captained by ex-Dalriada student Katie Mullan - on their World Cup heroics.
Ireland, who began the tournament in London as the second lowest ranked team, shocked the world by reaching the final where they were beaten by the world's number one ranked team, The Netherlands.
  Paying tribute to the girls' efforts, the Mayor, Cllr Brenda Chivers, said they had written their names in the history books.
“The Irish ladies hockey team were brave, magnificent athletes and have achieved something that no other Ireland team has done, travelling home as silver medallists," she said.
“I wish to offer my warmest congratulations to Coleraine girl Katie Mullan, her team-mate Megan Frazer from Ballymoney and the whole team on their wonderful journey in the World Cup.  I have no doubt the team have a very bright future ahead," added the mayor.
