A difficult day for our men as they finish out of the medals in Geneva and Ireland’s 10-year quest to get out of the European C League continues.

The semi-final against Slovenia this morning saw the team two shots up going into the last two ends, but losing two steals of singles to their opponents forced an extra end. Again, Ireland had the hammer but lost another single and automatic qualification.

It was then time to regroup in the afternoon and play for bronze and the last qualification place against Slovenia. Unfortunately, the game did not go Ireland’s way.

The team have filled Irish curling fans with pride this week and they will be back. It has been a difficult time for all curlers – from all nations – and it was good to see international curling back again.
