Ireland leaves Lacrosse tourney to make room for Iroquois

Ireland’s men’s lacrosse team has withdrawn from the 2022 Lacrosse World Games in Alabama to make space for the Iroquois Nationals.

The Nationals, of the Haudenosaunee Nation, were initially rejected by the eight-team tournament because they don’t represent a country.

But now the International World Games Association has reversed its decision and allowed the confederacy of six First Nations – Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca and Tuscarora Nations – to participate.
