Ladies Winter League

The Ladies Winter League Class 2 team, captained by Judy Byrne, won their section without dropping a point. They had to play a playoff match  on Wednesday after it got cancelled due to the snow. Having won that the next match was on Saturday 10 March at 9am when the Ladies lined out against Sandycove 1st in a thrilling Q/Final match and won 2 with an unfinished match at nr1. The Semi-Final was held the next day in Donnybrook against Sutton 1 who arrived with a very strong team. It was not Donnybrook's day but what a campaign the panel had.
