the final to bring a Ladies Connacht Penant back to Castlebar for the first
time in 20 years.
Irwin & Sheila Baynes won their matches to get 2 points on the board early
with Connie White losing her match narrowly in a great battle.
Carmel Moran closed out the overall win winning her match on the 19th
with Leah Kerr still in a great position all square playing 18 when she was
called in. Well done to Team Captain Breta Fitzmaurice and her squad on a

& Declan Prendergast winning their match on the 20th and Tom
Moylett & Ray Prendergast winning on the 19th. This followed
earlier wins by Brendan Frost & Shane Rice on the 17th and Ian
Brennan & Pat Waldron on the 14th. Ger Noone & Johan Collins
fought hard all day eventually losing out on the 18th.
