The Finn Trophy took place last Wednesday at Gowran Park against Waterford Castle. On this, our 3rd attempt, we managed to get past the first round and beat Waterford Castle comprehensively – so well done to all involved:-

Niamh Connolly & Deirdre Mc Cabe
Sinead Kearney & Karen Haughney
Ann Mullins and Ger Hickey
Breda Bolger & Catherine O’Connor
Nora Barron & Helen Dunne

Match results for the Minor Team v New Ross and Intermediate Team v Castlecomer played last Monday 9th May are available online.
This week’s competition is the Australian Spoons – please ensure you have a playing partner and opposition organised.

The South Leinster team for 2011 bowed out in the first round in a close fought match
against defending champions Dunmurray Springs who had the advantage of a home
draw. Our home team of Pat Staunton (Won 4&3), Liam Hutchinson (Won 4&3) and
Tom Dack (Lost 4&3) gave us a good chance of causing an upset. The away team
had it all to do in very windy conditions. Aidan Grogan lipped out on the 18th to lose
1 down, James Fitzgerald was 1 up standing on the 18th, James Fisher and Tommy
Bolger were beaten 3&2. Team Managers Melvyn Kennedy and John Barcoe would
like to thank all involved for their efforts.
