MAISIE KELLY'S takes the honours as two Ark­low pub teams con­test Gorey area fi­nal

It was down to two Ark­low pubs in the fi­nal of the Gorey District Pub Pools League Di­vi­sion 11 fi­nal held re­cently at Naomh Eanna GAA club in Gorey.

Maisie Kelly's and The Gin Mill, with the honours, and the Cup, go­ing to the men from the Cool­gre­aney Road hostelry by three games to one.

But this was an achieve­ment also for The Gin Mill, as both that team and Maisie's are now pro­moted to League Di­vi­sion One for next sea­son's con­test.

Also, it was no­table that the two Ark­low teams were the only ones to com­pete from the whole of south Wick­low, so some se­ri­ous pool­ing is be­ing done in the town.

The con­test on the night was de­cid- ed by a “best of five” for­mula, with Maisie's win­ning three of four, so there was no need to play the fifth game.

Joe Wead­ick, of the Maisie Kelly's team, told The Wick­low People that he wished to ex­press, on be­half of the team, “our spe­cial thanks to all the of­fi­cials of the Gorey League, and to Naomh Eanna for their fan­tas­tic hos­pi­tal­ity on the night.”
