A quiet week on the rinks this week with only the Ladies Divi­sion 1 team in com­pet­i­tive ac­tion.

They played away to West­manstown and unfortunately they found the grass rink too hot to han­dle. They brought home one point.

The real big news this week is the mag­nif­i­cent per­for­mance of the Bray quar­tet of Christy McEvoy, Betty Keogh Breeda Keogh and Tony Mur­phy in reach­ing the fi­nal of the Ke­nil­worth Mixed Rinks Tour­na­ment.

This is one of the old­est and most pres­ti­gious of the sum­mer tour­na­ments. Well done to all con­cerned.

The sea­son is very much near­ing the fin­ish­ing tape and the ac­tion for the men re­sumed last night (Tues­day) with Divi­sion 4 away to CYM.

To­day (Wed­nes­day) sees the ladies at home to Sk­er­ries and Divi­sion 6 at home to Ke­nil­worth. Thurs­day has Vets 1 away to West­manstown.

Satur­day has DIvi­sion 1 at home to St. James Gate and Divi­sion 2 away to Crum­lin.

Mon­day, Au­gust 13 has Divi­sion 4 at home to West­manstown. Re­mem­ber that all mid­week league games now start at 6.00pm. Mon­day, Au­gust 13 and Tues­day, Au­gust 14 sees a num­ber of our ladies in ac­tion in the LBLI Cham­pi­onships in CYM, in Terenure. Good luck to Phyl­lis Brett, Patsy Don­nelly, Jean Kane and Marge O’Leary.

Our own in­ter­nal cham­pi­onships are mak­ing very good progress as we head to­wards the fi­nals week­end. A full up­date will ap­pear next week. Fi­nally the win­ner of the lotto this week is Ger Minogue. WICK­LOW ROVERS
