Clann Eireann One Wall Open

Lorraine Havern of Down claimed the Ladies Open title beating Tyrones Meave McElduff who put up a brave fight taking the game right to the wire, Havern managing to pull a few aces clear in the closing minutes. Both players accounted for Aisling Reilly and Fiona Shannon in the semis, the Antrim girls both making the debut on the one wall courts.

Men’s B Winner Pat Conway from Williamstown, Galway beat Clann Eireann’s Conal McCavitt in a very close match with Pat using all is experience and power to win by a few aces.

In the Men’s C Stewart Heslin of Louth beat Clann Eireann’s Peter Shanks, with both players tied 10 minutes into the match it was Heslin who called on all his reserves to power ahead in the last third.

The Men’s Recreational title was claimed by Clann Eireann’s Dee Harvey at the expense of his fellow clubman Geggy McConville. Harvey will no doubt be making full use of all his bragging rights after this win, but will Bronco be silenced?

Meanwhile the Masters Division final was probably the closest and most entertaining match of the day. Niall Kerr of Tyrone and Clann Eireann’s Conor McMahon renewed their rivalries once again and it was McMahon who got off to a flying start. Leading throughout he commanded the rallies but Kerr kept working levelling the score with only a few minutes remaining. It was Kerr who appeared stronger at the end and he closed out the match to claim the Masters title.
