Our players on the colleges teams acquitted themselves very well last weekend with Sinéad Meagher reaching the Munster final before losing to Clare opposition. Doubles team Eimear Meagher and Síle Spain and CBS representative Eoin Meagher played very well, but lost out to the eventual Munster champions in their respective divisions while Katie Morris and Danielle Nealon lost by a single point (28-27) in a super game. Well done to all involved.
