AIPS – Titles to Connacht and Leinster

The venue for the Primary Schools Championships this year was the very pleasant Banbridge Leisure Centre where excellent facilities had been set up by Arnold Morgan.  Everyone was welcome to the first occasion on which Ulster had organised this event.  We lacked an entry from Munster in the Girls’ competition, but otherwise all the provinces were represented.  Results were clear cut, so there was no need to use the one game doubles play-off in the event of a draw, nor countback to determine results.

The Boys’ event was dominated by St Teresa’s National School from Kilkelly, though they were pushed hard by both Gaelscoil Ui Fhiaich from Maynooth and Lissagriffin National School from Skibbereen.

In the Girls’ event Guardian Angels National School from Blackrock were clear winners, losing only one individual match.

Many thanks to Ulster Schools sponsor Allianz, Referee Mr.Tony Phillips and Tom Mitchell, Arnold Morgan, Ted Mahaffy and Jamie McConkey for providing Umpire supervision, and to all the players, teachers, coaches and parents for making it a most enjoyable day.
