Australia defeat Ireland to win International Rules Series

Ireland will travel home from Australia empty-handed after a gutsy second test performance came up short in Perth earlier today.

The Ireland side, captained by Mayo’s Aidan O'Shea, entered the game looking to claw back a 10-point deficit following last weekend's defeat but, after a good start, they wilted when Australia controlled the second half, and Ireland finished three points behind – the final score was Australia 53  Ireland 50.

Over 30,000 spectators watched the game.
