Connacht Junior Open 2019
The first tournament of the new season saw our Munster Juniors travel to Salthill in Galway on 28th and 29th of Sept. Our players got some fantastic results starting with Adam Power (Celtic) getting the ball rolling with a super win in the U11 boys to take the title 3-0 against Toby Keogh. Adam was delighted with this win and it was well deserved after a brace of final appearances last season. In the U17 boys, Eoghan Dunphy (Dunhill) lost out to Dylan Moran in a tough 5 set match. In the U19 boys, Sean White (Celtic) lost his R1 tie but rallied well and won his remaining games in the tournament to win the plate. In the U15 girls, Ava Murphy (Thurles) came up short in the final against Rebecca Kavanagh, this was a tough ask for Ava after a 5 setter in the semi-final, none the less a great achievement to make it to the final. There were many more Juniors that made the long trip to Galway and played great that weekend and really enjoyed the experience and continue to make great strides. well done to all the boys and girls and a massive thanks must go the parent for their continued support.
