BIBC Internationals

The 2015 International series is over and Ireland had a relatively successful series.

A close win against Wales, 111 – 110,  in the first game got the team off to a good start building on the successes of the British Isles Championships and the winning of the Triples, Fours and Nat West trophies.

In the second game against England, who went on to win the series, Ireland held them until the last few ends and eventually lost 127 – 101.

This left the last game against Scotland. If Ireland won and Wales beat England Ireland could still win the series. More realistically though was a win to finish runner-up in the series. Ireland got off the worst possible start being 16-3 down after the first two ends. A spirited fightback however mean’t Ireland led at 10 (50 – 46)and 15 ends (81 – 78). However in the run-in Scotland came on strong and the match finished winning 116 – 113.

The team therefore finished third. This was an excellent result considering the number of changes in the team, with 6 new caps, who all performed very well.
