On Saturday Michael Ducksy Walsh travelled to Dungarvan to play David Moloney Tipperary in the All Ireland Masters A Singles final. Unfortunately on the day things didn’t go too well for Ducksy where he was defeated in a tie break by Tipperary.


All Ireland Juvenile Semi Final Results

All Ireland Juvenile semi finals were in Monavea, Co. Laois on Sunday last. Kilkenny were represented in three grades. In Girls U16 doubles Margaret Purcell Windgap and Sorcha Delaney Clogh proved too strong, especially in their serving where they defeat Antrim. In U17 doubles Dion Bourke Mothel and Marc Purcell Clogh won the first game comfortably against Cavan, the second game the Kilkenny boys got off to a slow start but never gave up and came back to win the second game. Both the Girls U16 Doubles and Boys U17 Doubles now go on to the All Ireland Juvenile Finals in two weeks time and both pairs are wished the very best of luck. In the U15 Singles Eoin Brennan Kells came up against a strong Tyrone player, the first game could have gone either way but unfortunately Tyrone won in two games, hard luck to Eoin on the day but a great achievement on getting so far.
