We outplayed them but they were very sticky and came up with some clutch draws when they really had too which meant for a very slow and nervy last end.

Irelands third, John Furey, says

We were outplayed by a Spanish team who were playing well. We blanked a number of ends basically because they managed to remove all chance of a multiple score every time it looked a possibility.

Coach Eoin McCrossan photo bombs the official team picture.

Although the game was lost to Norway, they did manage to get the last space in the qualifying teams. WCF says “The 16th team to qualify was then decided by looking at the draw shot challenge results of all the teams that finished in fourth place, across the groups. Ireland earned this 16th position with a draw shot challenge (DSC) result of 20.13cm, which was better than Japan, Australia, England and Slovenia.”
