The Munster Schools Squash Boys under 13 Finals were a three way affair between, Scoil Ailbhe, Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa, and Leugh N.S. The finals were hosted by Thurles Squash Club on 1st of April 2015. A very sporting encounter was won by Leugh N.S.
With Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa & Leugh N.S. both winning their earlier ties against Scoil Ailbhe the scene was set for a “showdown tie” between Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa & Leugh N.S. In the #1s match, Philip O’Connell (Leugh N.S) beat Cillian McDonagh (Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa). In the #3s match Peter Dillon (Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa) beat Sarah O’Connell (Leugh N.S) to level the tie at 1/1! The tie was then set for a dramatic finale between the #2s Eoin O’Connell (Leugh N.S) & Cathal Corcoran (Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa). Cathal gave his best but had to retire due to a knee problem giving the deciding match to Eoin!
So, after a festival of squash with 29 exciting games, Leugh N.S. emerged the winners. Congratulations to Leugh N.S. and better luck next time to the other participating schools!
We wish Leugh N.S. all the best at the All Ireland Schools Finals to be held in ALSAA Squash Club, Dublin Airport on Friday 17th of April when they will represent Munster against schools from Leinster, Connacht & Ulster.
Scoil Ailbhe – Eoghan Cleary and Ben O’Driscoll
Leugh N.S. – Philip, Eoin, and Sarah O’Connell
Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa – Cillian McDonagh, Cathal Corcoran, Peter Dillon, and Luke Barnes
