British Isles International Series – Final Day
Ireland Shamrock Men’s team went into the final session with a realistic chance of qualification to the final stages of the British Isles International Series. They played Cymru in their final game, knowing any sort of a win would secure qualification, and an 8-2 win would mean participation in the final. After a tense match, the team secured the required 8-2 win.
In the Gold medal match, the Shamrocks faced the Scottish Thistle, and despite a good start, they fell to a 9-1 defeat. So they had to be content with a silver medal.
The series has been a new concept, and in general, it has been embraced by everyone involved.
