Excellent finale to Autumn Cup
TENNIS THE Augustus Cullen Law Autumn Cup came to a close last Friday night with some thrilling tennis in each of the three sections.
All the games were very close and everyone who was participating thoroughly enjoyed their matches. The close encounters were also enjoyed by a sizeable crowd.
The section A winner was Comine Cole and Barry Rooney, who managed to see off the challenge of Maeve McCarthy and John Sexton in the final. Section B winners were Heather Sheane and Jan Ove Kristiansen. They beat Margaret McGrath and Mark O’Neill.
Section C eventually went to Berna Collins and Andrew Reynolds, with Ena Hickey and Eric Swayne having to settle for a runners-up spot.
The tennis was then followed with a lovely hot supper and a prizegiving presentation.
