Mickey berry from Barntown continued his impressive 60 x 30 season with a hard-earned win over Darren O'Toole from Coolgreany in the Intermediate singles championship last weekend.

The Barntown man took the opening set 21-15, but O'Toole responded with a 21-12 win in the second set. Berry had the handball to pull himself out of trouble in the third set to win 21-12.

The Junior singles championship is at the last 16 stage, however last week a play-off game was needed in one group as David Kenny got the better of Jason Murphy 21-12 after the players had finished level on points.

In the round of 16, Eugene Kelly from Castlebridge was a 21-10, 21-12 winner over Phil Coleman from Ballymitty, while in the other last 16 game played last week, Thomas Hall from Castlebridge got the better of Noel Holohan from Templeudigan 21-19, 21-20.

In the Junior 'D' doubles, Laurence Dunne and Alan Armstrong from Kilmyshall were the winners against Brendan Holohan and Oliver Boland from Templeudigan on a 21-7, 21-5 score.

It was a busy week in the Over-35 championships for Seán Nolan and Fintan Furlong, with both players having three outings. J.R. Finn from Ballymitty beat Furlong from St. Mary's in singles 21-19, 21-11, however Furlong got back in the groove as he defeated Seán Nolan from Kilmyshall 21-10, 21-7.

Nolan was also on the losing side of things when he went down 21-15, 21-12 to David Stanners from St. Martin's. The final game of the week for the two busy men saw them clash in the Over-35 doubles, and again Furlong was on the winning side as he combined with Tommy Hardy for a fine 21-10, 19-21, 21-5 win over Nolan who was partnered by John Murphy.

Daniel Kavanagh is transferring his fine form in the small alley to the big alley as the St. Joseph's man was a 21-10, 21-7 winner over Thomas Hall from Castlebridge in the Minor singles, while the remaining game of a busy week saw Michael Rossiter from Ballyhogue claim victory in the Emerald Masters 'B' singles as he defeated Brendan Murphy from Castlebridge.
