Adrian Birrell's men were bowled out for 77 with Farveez Maharoof taking four wickets from 25 balls and Muttiah Muralitharan taking four from 19.

They made a solid start and stood on 20-0 before three wickets fell in quick succession to end all hope of a third win over a Test nation.

Jeremy Bray top-scored on 20, with five Irish batsmen out for a duck.

In reply, Sri Lanka reached their target in less than ten overs, ending the day on 81-2.

Boyd Rankin dismissed Upul Tharanga for a duck, before Kumar Sangakkara (10) was out off Dave Langford-Smith.

Ireland will now head home, with their opponents left behind to prepare for a semi-final date in Jamaica.
