So a pulsating day ends with Ireland on 435/7. They lost wickets steadily in the last two sessions but they will be very happy with their efforts especially Paul Stirling who scored his sixth Irish hundred today. Hopefully you can join us tomorrow when Canada will be hoping to wrap up the Irish innings quickly and then get on with the job of getting close to Ireland's total. So from me, Conor Hayes in a sunny Rathmines in Dublin, it's goodbye. Match State: Stumps - Day 1
