Ireland men sweep two Test hockey series against Wales



The Ireland men’s hockey team swept two Test hockey series against Wales, winning the second and final contest 2-0. The Green Machine failed to breach the Wales citadel in the first half, but soon turned things around in the second half as Shane O’Donoghue whipped home a penalty corner in the 44th minute.
The Irish made the scoreline 2-0 close to the final hooter when Alan Sothern made the most of a short corner.
Earlier, Ireland won the opening Test 3-1 with Michael Watt, David Carson and Shane O Donoghue being the goal-scorers.
The Ireland’s men’s team – ranked 15th in the world - will feature in a two Test series against England on July 4 and 5 respectively.
