Eimear Richardson and Sophie MacMahon are back in the Ireland Women's squad that will play The Netherlands in a four-match T20I series in Malahide later this month.

"Eimear has had a stellar season of club and provincial cricket in New Zealand and her experience and all-round skills will be a great addition to the squad," said Head of Selectors Carrie Archer.

"We also welcome back Mary Waldron who has recently returned from Australia, and is in line to play her first international in almost two years.

“Sophie MacMahon was unavailable for the Scotland series, but has had some impressive performances in the Super Series white-ball matches."

The series at Malahide runs from Monday July 26th to Friday July 30th, with Wednesday the designated reserve day.
