    Ireland beat Wales 1-0 in Wrexham a few minutes ago.
    Stephen Butler with the crucial short corner strike. Wales performend really well but paid the price for loosing possession in the last 1/3.

    Lets hope Ireland can win a final at senior level :yes:.

    Excelent News! I was thinking the other day that Wales might have wanted to lose the PS comp and avoid Ireand in the semis.

    Going back a few years Ireland have won international comps in the past, including the Santander International in 1972 when they beat GB (then again I don't know whether the Ireland GB players played for Ireland or GB in that tournament), and 4 years ago they won the Euro nations trophy

    Over the years they actually have made quite a few finals at all levels, both in mens and ladies, and normally if it is a final seem to loose on strokes.
    This group I think are growing and improving so they may make up for the tournament loss.
    But the important thing has been achieved promotion.

    what about 10-2 against italy? nice to see the team hitting some good form. great performance from the ulster boys (so i'm told.)
    a senior level final win would be fantastic!

    Good stuff. They looked a good side in the Celtic Cup and they've clearly carried it on in Wales. Well done and good luck to them in the final.
