Kirwan B League - Final Report
We were unable to get the match between Donabate 1 and Glasnevin 1 completed by 14th May. The rules do not allow for walkovers and we do strive to have all matches played, but as the result would not have had a material impact on the League standings, the committee decided that it was in order not to play the match.
However, it did delay me in sending you the final league positions. I know that both Orla Duffy’s Malahide team and Catherine McManus’s Glasnevin team have been peppering to see the final table. The Malahide Team went so far as to offer me a bribe of tea and biscuits at the recent DNR Tournament Director Course, but they were our own biscuits that they were offering me and they weren’t even chocolate.
Anyhow enough of the frivolity and down to business. Malahide played their final match against Clontarf and won by 18.19 to 1.81 VP’s. This left them on a total of 87.67 VP’s with Glasnevin needing to win their match against Patricia Rice-Butterly’s Donabate team by 68 IMP’s. They came so close, but not close enough winning by 65 IMP’s giving them a 19.44 to 0.56 VP win. This left Glasnevin on a total of 87.47 VP’s, just 0.20 of a VP behind Malahide.
Vernon won their final match against Patricia’s Donabate team and took 3rd place. The round 7 results were as follows:

Congratulations to the Malahide team of Orla Duffy, Clare O’Neill, Sylvia Kennedy, Liz Butler, Niall Duffy and Mary Whelan.
Thank you to all the teams that participated and hopefully we will see you all again next year.
