Ireland had a steady season, never straying too far away from 8th and 9th on the ladder. Throughout the series Ireland’s best finish was in Langford Canada securing – 9th place overall, and just missing out on the 8th spot behind England. Ireland certainly have what it takes to move up the ranks of the World Series Sevens ladder. After qualifying for the 2018 Rugby Sevens World Cup, they will need to kick into gear to make some semi finals.
There’s a bar in Ireland that opened in the year 900 A.D. and is still operational. It’s called “Sean’s Bar”.
