Grand Slam Victory
Congratulations to former Kilruane NS student Ben Healy and the Irish u20 team on winning the grand slam at the weekend
Well done to Laura Shinners and the Tipperary minor Camogie team on their win over Wexford on Saturday, as well as her player of the match performance against Dublin the previous weekend.
Preparations are well under way for our league campaign commencement in two weeks. A victory in last week’s challenge against Shamrocks of Galway was a great test in the lead up to first opponents Cahir.
The Munster Juvenile Handball Finals were played the weekend before last in Nenagh, Kilcoleman and Carrick-on-Suir. Katie Mulcahy played in U12 singles and narrowly lost out to Clare opposition in a thrilling final. Ali O’Kelly played a girl from Dungarvan in U13 singles and came very close to winning in a tough game. In the U13 doubles Christine Percy and Lucy Gould played a Clare pair with Tipp winning the first game, losing the second but went on to win the tie-break. Last to play was Hannah Grace and Leanne Gould in U14 doubles also facing Clare. The Tipperary girls started slowly but found their rhythm and went on to win in two straight games 15-6, 15-8.
