Mark Scannell, Ireland coach:
"It's been a tough week but we managed to hold out to get a win and the players deserve huge credit for holding their nerve. Iceland put in a good display and looked in a very strong position but the experience from the two previous wins helped us through what was a very difficult clash."
Michelle Aspell, Ireland player:
"It was important to get the win and keep the momentum going and we can now travel to the Netherlands in confidence and with plenty to play for. Iceland have a good record against us in recent years us so it was great to finally get some luck against them."
