Report

_________________________________________________________

From 2004-2012 Ireland competed in the B-Tournament in the European Championships, and twice winning promotion to the A-Tournament, before the loss of Home Ice meant they could no longer compete.

In 2004, they finished top of Group A with a perfect 8-0 record, winning 13-4 in the Semi-Finals against the Czech Republic before losing 9-2 to Finland in the Final, although winning Promotion in the process.

2005 would see Ireland finish with a 4-5 record in the A-Tournament and in joint 6th.

In 2006 the Irish team would finish with a 3-6 record, losing the relegation playoff 5-4 to France.

Back in the B-Tournament for 2007, Ireland would finish top of Group A on 6-0, but lose the Promotion Playoff 9-7 & 9-2 to the Czechs. After winning the Placement Playoff 9-7 against Latvia, Ireland would win the Final 9-4 against Spain.

In the A-Tournament again for 2008 Ireland would finish joint bottom with a 1-8 record and be relegated.

Once again in the B-Tournament for 2009, the Irish would finish joint second in their Group on 7-2, before once again beating Latvia in the Playoffs 9-2, and then going down 9-3 to the Netherlands in the Place 3 Playoff, who would go on to beat Russia in the Final.

In the 2010 Tournament, Ireland would finish runners-up to Latvia in their group with 5 wins and 1 loss, before beating Slovakia 9-2 & 8-2 in the Playoffs, and again losing in the Semi-Finals to the eventual winners, this time Italy on a scoreline of 6-5.

For 2011, Ireland would finish joint top of their group on 6-1 with England, before losing the Playoff to them 8-4, and then in the next Playoff, losing to Hungary 6-4. Once again, for the third year running, Ireland would lose in the Semi-Finals to the eventual winner, Russia this time, 6-3.

Following a disappointing 2012 where Ireland finished bottom of their group on 1-6, they would lose Home Ice, after Dundonald Ice Bowl was no longer available for Curling, and be unable then to compete in the European Championships until returning to the C-Tournament in 2017.
