The Munster Schools Squash Girls under 15 Final between Ursuline Secondary Thurles and Ardscoil Na Mara Tramore was hosted by Thurles Squash Club on 26th of March 2015. A very sporting encounter was won 1/3 by Ardscoil Na Mara.
|Ursuline Secondary Thurles||1||-||2||ArdScoil Na Mara Tramore|
|Claire Dempsey||0||-||3||Róisín Kirwan|
|Fiona Guidera||0||-||3||Jordan Scholtz|
|Aoife Dempsey||3||-||1||Sarah Fleming|
Róisín, who is the current Irish and Munster No. 1 under 13, was too strong for Claire (Munster No. 2 under 15) on this occasion and got Ardscoil off to a flying start with a 0/3 win. Aoife, Munster No. 4 under 13, wasn’t to be denied (on her birthday!) and beat relative newcomer Sarah 1/3 in a very close match. With the sides level after two matches all eyes focused on the final match between Fiona & Jordan who are currently ranked 5 and 4 in Munster under 15 respectively. Both girls demonstrated how much they have improved this season with some wonderful squash on display. Jordan proved the stronger and won the tie for Ardscoil.
Thanks to Mary O’Loughlin (Ardscoil Na Mara Coach/Manager), Gerry Connaughton (Ursuline Secondary Coach), Brenda Dempsey, and Siobhán Guidera (Ursuline Secondary Managers).
Well done to all the girls who are a credit to their schools and their parents.
We wish Ardscoil Na Mara Tramore 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 and Ulster.
