The competitors were Donal Coghlan from Leinster, Seamus

at home, luckily Tom was travelling up for moral support for Willie so
he kindly agreed to play the 2 games.

on 32 VP! Well done and good to see a new name on the cup.
Runners up were:
Tom Worden 31 VP, Donal Coghlan 30VP and Seamus McKenna 7VP.
Many thanks and well done to all competitors.
