Mark Gazi (Tralee) fought back to secure a half on 18 in the final match to round off an amazing opening day for the Ireland Boys’ and Girls’ teams.

The R&A Home Internationals got underway on Tuesday morning and Ireland secured sensational 9.5-2.5 and 7.5-1.5 wins respectively over Wales in Lindrick.

Darcy Hogg (Belvoir Park), Fionn Dobbin (Malone) and James Walsh (Douglas) all contributed two points each for the Boys while Anna Abom (Edmondstown), Caoimhe O’Grady (Royal Dublin) and Ellen O’Saughnessy (County Louth) did likewise for the Girls.


Overall, it meant that Ireland began their week with a massive 17-4 win against Wales and they are joint-top of the standings alongside England in the combined Boys’ and Girls’ table.

The Men’s and Women’s Home Internationals begin tomorrow morning with Ireland also set to play Wales in Machynys.
