Ireland claim best ever finish at Emerging Nations Championships

Ireland’s involvement in the 2nd IHF Emerging Nations Championships came to a disappointing end on Sunday evening when the boys in green suffered a 39-26 defeat to Great Britain.

However the players and staff can be proud of their 12th place finish in tournament considering the quality and calibre of the teams involved.

Congratulations to the Faroe Islands on their retention of the title and to Turkey and Kosovo who join them in qualifying for phase 2 of the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
