Ireland will play Spain in the European Senior Ladies’ Team Championship Flight A Final on Saturday afternoon after they secured a brilliant 3.5 to 1.5 win over Switzerland in their semi-final on Friday which was enough to secure their place in the decider.

Meanwhile, the men lost 3-2 against England in their Flight A semi-final and they will face Italy on Saturday afternoon in their third placed play-off.

The women were out early on Friday morning and got the momentum with Suzanne Corcoran (Portumna) and Gertie McMullen (The Island) pulling off a 3&1 win.


Tracy Eakin (Dooks) followed that up with a 4&3 success and after Deirdre Walsh (Milltown) halved her match, Alison Taylor (Malahide) grabbed a brilliant 2 hole success and a place in the final.

The men also had a winning start to their match against England, with Colin Cunningham (Carton House) and Noel Crawford (Greystones) winning 4&3 and then Eddie McCormack (Galway Bay) won his match on the 20thhole. However, Ireland lost the rest of the matches and failed to make the final.
