Lana Hayes

Lana Hayes co-captained the Irish Netball Under 17’s as they created history, becoming the first ever Irish Under 17 team to take gold at the European Netball Challenge Cup.


The Netball team secured first place in the European U17 Championships in the Isle of Man in March – this see’s them promoted to the highest division.

Hayes’s leadership and dominance in defence helped Ireland win three games out of three – defeating the Isle of Man, Malta and Gibraltar.


Her dominance on the court incredibly saw Ireland win every quarter of every game they played.

Not content with just one trophy in one sport, Hayes was part of the Loreto Beaufort Senior Hockey team which overcame Newpark Comprehensive to win the Leinster Hockey Schoolgirls Senior Cup.
