The Irish has a relatively disappointing opening day at the European championships in Belfast. Both Boley and Lakehill failed to progress from their groups in the men’s 680kg. G&B pulled well to top their group and made it through to the semi finals. They were defeated in the semis by Bison from the Netherlands. They also lost the bronze medal match to Elgelberg from Switzerland. Kiltevna ladies made a good debut at International level in the ladies 560kg. They weighed in 30kg light but pulled well picking up 4 points.
