Report: Munster Ranking Competition No 1 -19 November 2023

A total of 66 entries were received
for the first Munster ranking competition of the 2023/24 season, which was held
in Knocknaheeny, Cork City. We had players from 4 counties – Cork, Kerry,
Limerick and Waterford – with 6 different clubs contributing players. It was
particularly encouraging to see UL players back in competition again. The
following categories were offered – U/13, U/15, Para, Veterans and Senior
Divisions 1 and 2.

Sean Loughnane, South Coast,
prevailed in the Senior 1 Division by beating Anthony Redmond, Killarney, in
the final. UCC’s Konstantine Knuferman took the Division 1 Plate title by
beating Killarney’s Danny Szabat. In Division 2 Attila Magyar Snr, South Coast,
beat young Caoimhe Deane of Leeside in the final, while Junior player, Patrick
McCormick of Beech Hill took the Division 2 Plate final by beating Shuming
Huang of UL. In the Veterans the evergreen Philip Shaw, Beech Hill, took the
title in beating Piotr Stankiewicz, Leeside, in the final. In the U/15 Group,
overall victory went to the up and coming Conall Conroy, Leeside, with Attila
Magyar Jnr in second place. Beech Hill’s Kevin O’Callaghan, won the
U/13 final with Florian Lotkowski, South Coast, runner up. This was a
significant achievement for Kevin, as a wheelchair user, and with only 12
months of competitive experience.  In the
U/13 Plate, Theo Farkis, unattached, prevailed over Samantha Pusinskas,
Leeside.  Samantha, however, had the
consolation of being the U/13 Girls Champion on the day. Overall, a great day
for Beech Hill with three firsts followed by South Coast with two firsts. The
