Katie leads Ireland into quarter-finals thumbnail

COLERAINE'S Katie Mullan has led Ireland into the quarter-finals of the Women's Hockey World Cup in England.
A student at UCD in Dublin, Katie captained her country to famous wins over the United States and India in the group stages before losing to hosts England on Sunday.
Despite that defeat, Ireland are through to the knock-out stages where they will play the winner of the clash between India and Italy which takes place on Tuesday evening.
It's a remarkable achievement for the Irish team, ranked 15 out of 16 teams in the tournament, but given their exploits to date no-one would bet against them achieving further success in London.
