    Ireland needed just under 10 overs on day four to bowl Scotland out and thump the visitors by an innings and 44 runs in Dublin

  • Ireland poised for big win

  • Rain claims most of day two

    Just 21 overs were possible on day two in Dublin as Ireland were robbed of the chance to build a solid first innings lead over Scotland.

  • Young shines on Ireland debut

    Craig Young made an impressive debut for Ireland, taking 4 for 53 against Scotland, as they took control of their Intercontinental Cup meeting at Clontarf
