She also skipped the ladies pairs to win the Australian title, skipped the ladies triples to win the Australian title and skipped the ladies fours to a third place.

The ladies Australian team travelling to Ireland includes five ladies - Janet and two ladies from Victoria and two from Brisbane.

They will meet in Dubai and travel to Ireland.
