Senior Badminton:
In the Division 5 Knockout Cup semi-final, Moyvane played County in Tralee and qualified for the Final by winning 8sets – 6sets. Team was Suzanne Keane, Charlotte Fitzgerald, Celia O’Grady, Eileen Roche, Timmy Flaherty, Timmy Larkin, Liam Corridan and Micheal Nolan. They will play Killarney in the final in Tralee on Wednesday night.
Munster Championships: A few weeks ago Donnacha Moloney won the Munster Singles in Killarney and on Sunday last in UL he won another Munster title when he partnered James Sheehan and won the Munster Doubles Title. I think its the first time a Moyvane player won two Munster Titles so well done Donnacha, and also well done to James on winning his first title, a great achievement.
Saorcha Fitzgerald and Michelle Kearney were second in the Ladies Doubles, Division 4. Michelle Corridan playing with Claire Stack, County were third in their division.
Elaine Hudson representing Cork won Division 4. Congratulations to all, a great day and a great display. Hopefully success will continue when the Division 3 mixed league team play the Munster final in UL on May 7th.
Club members are reminded that The Kerry Badminton social is on Friday May 4th, tickets should be booked immediately.
