St Colmans are Munster Champions again, today they
retained their Irish Schools Junior Championship in Castlemartyr. The refixed final took place today with St
Colmans, St Francis Rochestown and Abbey Community College all in action. Ciaran Rice, Ben Carey and Louie Roche were
the members of the winning team, and all played well in the favourable conditions. Ciaran Rice led the way for
St Colmans. He was out in the first group
and came back with 39 points. Louie
Roche added 33 points to give Colman’s a winning score of 72 points. It was a great score for the 23 handicapper,
his was playing off the maximum handicap of 15 allowed in the competition. Off his full handicap he would have returned 41
Abbey Community College were second on 68 points, with
Alex Byrne, Shane Egan and Luke Cullen featuring on the team. Jack Murphy, David O’Sullivan and Eoghan Power
were on the St Francis Team who finished with 67 points.
Yesterday, Colaiste Choilm Ballincollig made it a double-double
when they won the Schools Senior Championship in Killarney. Colaiste Choilm and St Joesph’s Ballybunion had
both won their semi-finals in Castlemartyr two weeks ago before rain forced the
postponement of the final. Both sides
reconvened for the final, and it was the Cork side who won in a 3.5-1.5 win
over St Josephs.
Both Colaiste Choilm and St Colman’s now go forward to
represent Munster in the All Ireland finals which take place early next year.
