Ireland win this game comfortably but Canada put up a much better fight today. Ireland now have 4 wins out of 4 in the one-day league and look in good shape for qualifying for the 2015 event. Canada now have lost 4 out of 4 and their hopes look in tatters. The 3 runouts in the Canadian innings today completely swung the match and credit must go to Ireland for their constant high standards in the field. So that ends the cricket season in Ireland I would like to thank you for following ESPNcricinfo's coverage throughout the summer and all that's left for me to do is sign off. So from Conor Hayes in a cool and overcast Clontarf it's goodbye.
