Sunday 8th May marked a major success for Claregalway Division 3 League Team. They represented Connacht at Division 4 Level (Connacht Teams go down a grade at National Level Competition) in the All Ireland League Finals, in the Galway Lawn Tennis Club.
Claregalway played brilliantly to defeat Blackrock from Cork, but were overcome by an extremely strong team from Clara in Offaly. We are very proud to take home Silver Medals, and congratulations to all team members for their effort and dedication in playing their games since last October, and in fact over the years. Most of this team have been playing together since they were 14 years of age. Well Done!
Team Members: Paul Casserly, Fionnuala Glynn, Niall Hartigan, Mairead Glynn, Liam Hyland, Caroline Mooney. Sub: Mary Forde.
Heartiest Congratulations Cathy Casserly, Christopher Keane and John Forde, who also competed in the same All-Ireland Finals last Sunday. Cathy starred on the Division I and Division III teams from the Galway Lawn Tennis Club, who both won the Gold Medals.
Cathy won 6 out of the gruelling 7 games which she played at the highest possible level.
Well done Cathy. Both John Forde and Christopher Keane played very prominent roles in the Division I and Division III victories respectively Congratulations Lads. All three players are products of the Claregalway Galway Junior Badminton Club. and hopefully are an inspiration to all the strong young players coming up through the ranks.
