The 14th GENSB Games tournament was held on Saturday last at Sursee Switzerland. An 18 strong Irish Youth development squad traveled to compete at the Games as has been the case in recent years. Two Eire Og teams competed as 54 teams entered the competition. Eire Og team 1 performed were well finishing second place in their group with 19 points qualifying for the top 16. In the last 16 they were unlucky to meet the famous Stans Oberdorf club from Switzerland. Stans won the first end but the Irish team fought back in great style to win the second end bringing the contest to a third and deciding end. The strong Swiss team went on to win the third end but Eire Og can be proud of their performance finishing 13th place overall. Eire Og team 2 found themselves in a very difficult group which included Sins who went on to win bronze. They pulled well finishing in 4th position with 7 points finishing 42nd overall. Well done to all the pullers who competed and put in a great effort to prepare and finance the trip. Thanks to all the coaches & guardians who accompanied the squad to Sursee.
