The county finals of the Community Games skittles took place in the wonderful facilities of Hillview Sports Centre, Clonmel in glorious sunshine.
At this stage we believe the Co-ordinators Matt and Adrian Anglim must be able to order the weather as the conditions have been perfect for the past few years.
Hot favourites Ballingarry successfully defended their title in the under 12 event defeating Silvermines. Ballingarry area then went on to complete a double beating a good team from St Peter and Paul’s Clonmel in the under 14 championship. They will now go forward to contest the Munster finals in Tralee along with the under 16 team from St Peter and Paul’s who were already qualified.
Gold medal winners u12 were Aaron Dunne, Stephen Donovan, Michael O’Shea, AJ Dunne, Shane Byrnes
Gold Medal winners u14: Lauren Donovan, Daniel Lyons, Louise Lawlor, Conor Hayes, Patrick Byrnes. Manager of both teams is Jesse Donovan
Silver medals to St Peter and Pauls - Grace Lee, Chloe Crotty O’Grady, Aoife Hickey
We expect Ballingarry to feature on the scroll of honour for Athlone again this year.
Community Games wish to express their sincere thanks to Hillview Sports Centre committee for their continued support and use of their facilities and a big thank you to the Anglim team and Veronica Brett along with Mary Walsh Sandra Thomas and all our staunch supporters.
