Players who would like to attend the national underage squads may attend multiple age group squads. However, it is a priority for the player to attend the age group they currently fall into during the 2015/2016 season. For example a player who is eligible for the Irish U13 squad may attend the U15 squad, but this must not be at the expense of any U13 squads. Any player failing to attend their national under-age squad without good reason removes themselves from selection.
