Ireland lose to Finland

Ireland 5 Finland 10

The loss of a five in the seventh end knocked back Ireland’s hopes of progressing up the rankings of the world mixed doubles this morning. The Fyfe duo now play Hungary, last year’s world champions, at 3pm to try and get into the top 12 MD teams and lay the golden egg this is Olympic points.

Well done to Neil and Alison for an excellent run so far. You are doing Ireland and the ICA proud.

The senior men are also in action at 3pm (our time) against Germany in a qualifier game for this evening’s quarter-finals. Come on Ireland!

Here are some of the latest photographs of our Irish teams taken by the WCF photographers….
