Four Ennis teenagers are in Scotland as part of Ireland’s U19 volleyball squad who will compete in The Flying Scots tournament.

Cillian O’Riordan, Jesus Quaye Saya, Cathal Dwyer and Cian Humphreys will represent their country at St Andrews University. Over the next three days, they will be playing selections from Northern Ireland, England and Scotland in what is the U19s first international tournament.
