World Cup ‘pinnacle of career’ thumbnailKatie Mullan will lead Ireland into the Hockey World Cup this weekend.

IRELAND Women's Hockey team captain Katie Mullan says she and her colleagues will relish the underdogs tag as they begin their World Cup challenge this weekend.
The Coleraine born 24-year-old leads an Ireland side ranked 15th out of the sixteen teams competing in London but argues that on their day they can give anyone a game.
That confidence will be put to the test with the 'Green Army' pitted in the same group as hosts England, currently ranked second in the world.
Ireland also face an Indian team ranked tenth in the world and open their campaign against the might of the USA this Saturday.
