Arrival in Seville

After a long day of travel, the Irish hit the ground running in Seville, Spain, with a scrimmage alongside the Mairena Lacrosse Club.

Mairena had 13 players in attendance, including three that are currently trying out for the Spanish National Team.

After an hour-long session in which members from both teams were meshed for a scrimmage, the Irish and their hosts gathered together to eat traditional Spanish food.

Tour of Seville

The Irish were back at it on day two with a tour of Seville, Spain, that included visits to the Plaza de Espana, La Giralda and all around the downtown area of the city.

The team gathers for a team photo in Plaza de Espana.

Exploring Tangier, Morocco

The Irish set foot in their 3️⃣rd continent in three days and had an incredible time exploring Tangier, Morocco!

The Irish travelled from Seville to Tarifa, Spain, before taking an hour-long ferry ride across the Strait of Gibraltar to Tangiers, Morocco.

The tour of one of Africa's most northern points started on the cliffs of Tangiers, and the group gathered for a team photo at the point where the Atlantic Ocean becomes the Mediterranean Sea.

The Irish then had the opportunity to ride camels along the shore of Tangier, and 😁were had all around! 🐫

The rest of the day trip to Tangier included a traditional Moroccan lunch, exploring the Caves of Hercules and a walking tour of downtown. For a complete behind-the-scenes look at our day, check out the video below!

Zip lining in Alcoutim

  • After arriving in Alcoutim, players and staff ferried across the River Guadiana (pictured left), which divides Portugal and Spain.
  • Players and staff were then transported up a mountain to zip line 720 meters back across the water.
  • The Irish were literally "flying through time" and gaining one hour because of the time zone change between both countries. Take a look. 🎥⤵️

Giving Back in Quarteira

Before the final leg of the trip in Lisbon, the Irish stopped in Quarteira, Portugal, to sport alongside some local children. 📸⤵️

Final Leg: Lisbon, Portugal

After their clinic in Quarteira, the Irish arrived in Lisbon for the final leg of the 10-day trip. They literally hit the ground dancing in Portugal's capital city, participating in a show alongside professional dancers on the street.
Our final day abroad was spent exploring Lisbon in the morning, followed by surf lessons in the afternoon and a cooking class where we prepared our final meal of the trip.
