Winter League Phase II 2022/2023 Finals

Winter League Phase II 2022/2023 Finals

All roads lead to the Catholic Institute in Limerick on the weekend of the 27th & 28th May 2023 where two of our teams took part in the Winter League Finals.

Saturday saw our Ladies Grade 3 team of Samantha Horan, Denise Flannery, Melissa Kenny & Deirdre Hogan play St Anne’s of Waterford. The 2 teams battled it out in the very warm weather with our Ladies team coming away with a 3-1 win and the title.

On Sunday our Men’s Grade 4 team of Kevin McKenna, Seanie Kelly, Cathal Hanrahan & Tommy Mulqueen (subbing for Karl Horan) took to the court at 10am to play Monaleen. Once again the men enjoyed very sporting games and came away with a convincing 4-0 victory.

The club would like to congratulate the teams on a great tournament and to thank Kennedy’s Puckane for sponsoring the tops for both teams over the weekend.
