Over the past weekend we had junior players competing in three different tournaments.
In St.Annes Waterford we had the Category 1 event for the under 14s and 18s. It proved to be a fantastic weekend for Munster players with no fewer than 7 of the 8 final places going to Munster players. Well done to Hugh O Sullivan and Ava Fanning who won the under 14 boys and girls singles events respectively.
Well done also to Olwyn Ryan Bovey and Cian Maguire who won the under 18 singles events. Congrats to Roisin Moore, Katie Morrissey and Eoin Hartnett who were runners up in their events.
In Rathgar, we had two finalists in Erin Perrem and Aiden Foley, both were very unlucky to just fall short in their matches. Well done also to our under 10 players, Darragh Foley, Tomas Scully, Charlie Twomey and Oisin Rea who had fantastic results in the under 10 event.
In Westport, James O Callaghan Maher was our only representative. Well done to James for going all the way and winning the boys under 12 event.
