Despite a career best 96 from John Mooney, Ireland lost by 8 wickets to Scotland in the final one day international in Malahide.
-
Ireland, however, won the three-match series 2-1 following wins on Monday and Wednesday.
-
There was a half an hour delay to the start with play eventually geting under way at 10.45am
-
Scotland won the toss and put Ireland into bat and at the end of their 50 overs Ireland had reached 241-9.
-
A day after his revealing interview on RTE about his struggles with depression, Mooney made his highest score in a 50-over international game.
-
Mooney hit 96 before he was caught at backward point in the last over trying to reach a maiden century and his innings helped Ireland past the 200 mark.
-
It appeared a half decent total which was probably about 30 runs too short as Scotland made short work in reply as Hamish Gardiner and Calum McLeod put on a second wicket partnership of 179, with McLeod going past his century and claiming the winning runs in the 46th over.
