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 2019 Club Championships starts on Monday 20th of May (the day after the final day of the Leinster Leagues). So put your name down on the list on the noticeboard, or contact Mick Germaine or Brendan Clare so you are put in the draw.

Our Heidenfeld trophy side won 5-3 away to Inchicore on Thursday, in Round 10 of the leagues.
Wins for Kevin, Conor, Colm, and Oisin, and draws for Dave and Art. Dario was very unlucky in a long game. That should keep us in the mix in the last round.
Our Heidenfeld side won 6-2 against Elm Mount on Monday, in Round 9 of the League. Wins for Kevin, Mohammad, Art and Oisin, and draws for Dave, Colm, Conor and Valentin. We are still in the mix but need another few good results in the final 2 rounds.
