The Club Championships finished up on Monday, with Dave Salter and Lukasz Kwiatek finishing joint 1st, with Kevin Butler in 3rd. Well done to all who played and to Brendan and Mick for organizing it amidst the venue upheavals.
Sadly An Oige informed us that they are closing the Dublin premises in mid-July. So we have to source alternative premises at quite short notice.
So if anyone has any ideas or suggestions could they let one of the Committee (Bernard, Breandán, Brendan, Mick, Conor, Tom Paddy or Peter) know and we shall investigate and hopefully we can find a suitable place asap.
What an exciting league it was this year. Well done to our heidenfeld side who was oh so close to being promoted, being one of 4 teams in 2nd place on points, unfortunately on tie-break we finished in 3rd place. Excellent wins for Mohammad, Kevin and Marc, and a draw for Conor. Dave pushed for a win, as we tried to ensure we would win, however it wasn’t to be. Thanks to everyone who played and especially those who substituted for us when we needed it.
Our Ennis side finished strongly the last few rounds to maintain its league position as well, remarkably all 6 players played ever game this season.
Good Luck to everyone playing in the Club Championships which starts tonight.
The Last Round of the Leinster Leagues takes place in ALSAA, Dublin Airport, on Sunday 19th of May. The Heidenfeld starts at 10AM.
Best of Luck to all our sides.
