The sixth and last Nations Cup of the European Division I in Dublin ended like the Nations Cups in St.Gallen and Rotterdam with a home victory. After two rounds Ireland and France were in the lead with four points each. Ireland won the jump-off in front of the enthusiastic audience. The Swiss team finished in a very good third place with a total of eight faults. Thus France (370 points), the Netherlands (350), Germany (330), Ireland (310), Switzerland (305), Belgium (285) and Great Britain (265) have managed to stay in the league and are qualified for the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup Final in Barcelona. Sweden as Olympic and current World Champion is relegated together with Norway.
