Junior Easter Competitions:

Over Easter 2 junior competitions attracted a combined entry of 45 juniors ranging in ages from 7 to 15 years. Like the Late Late Show there was a prize for everyone who participated. Thanks to Tony McCarthy for his help with grading and the magic shock absorbers. The winners were week 1 under 10 singles Alan Quigley who beat Oscar Quigley in a playoff. The under 14 doubles were won by Eoin McCarthy and Eddie Dunphy in week 2. Niall Deely won the under 8 Singles round robin, with Robert Keating and Owen Quigley runners-up. In the under 10 doubles Jonas Nyberg and Mark Guiry beat Alan Quigley and Conor Guiry in a playoff. The under 14 competition was run in 2 sections; the winners were Cathal Deeley and Eoin McCarthy & George Ryan and Aidan Hayes. Hopefully this will give the juniors a taste of competition and that they will continue to come up and practice.
