Seventeen-year-old Dorothy, who is a student at the Presentation Secondary School in Thurles and a member of the Fethard RFC, will compete for the Combined Provinces squad at the event. She already has an impressive record of success, having reached the Interprovincial Rugby Final and having played for the Irish 7s rugby team.
