England won the Five Nations Under 21 Netball Championship in 1992. The country is one of the top Netball Nations in the world, but the Republic of Ireland went into the tournament hoping to come second after their heroicsat the World Championsips the previous Autumn.
The Irish girls were to be disappointed, however, as they finished last in an anti-climactic finish to their season, losing by just three goals to Northern Ireland, and then soundly beaten by England in Day 1 at Belfield. On Day 2, Sunday, they continued their losing streak, as they went down by six goals to Scotland, and then were well beaten by Wales, who finished runners-up to England, in the final match.
Northern Ireland fared little better, going down by 50-19 to England on Day 2, giving England the trophy, and on Day 1 losing by six to Wales and then after defeating the Republic of Ireland, losing by eight goals to Scotland.
