Nathan Slattery, playing in his first year in the U.14 age group, continued his good form of 2016 when advancing to the National Matchplay finals without loss of a set at the regional play-offs at Claremorris over last weekend. The national finals will take place on the weekend after next. Nathan joins fellow Nenagh member Alicia White in the finals. Alicia will be playing in the U.12 finals, as will Aiden Foley (Killaloe-Ballina) and Emma Foley (also Killaloe-Ballina) who will play in the U.18’s.
Many thanks to all those who supported another fantastic fun Quiz Night. Over 30 tables were kept on their toes by quizmaster Donie Nealon. This night was an important fundraiser in support of the ambitious development plans in place at the club and the committee would like to extend sincere thanks to all those who attended/donated/contributed spot prizes/or volunteered in other ways towards such a great night. A speciall thanks also to the clubs sponsors and corporate friends.
For the record, the winning team were Tom Walsh, Mike Molloy, Gemma Flynn and Pauline Ryan. Looking forward to next year’s already, and we believe Tom is swatting up already to retain his title. In fairness, Cork people are starved of titles, especially team titles in certain sports these days!
