Leinster finals on Sunday

THE LEINSTER indoor team finals take place in Carlow this coming Sunday, March 28. Wexford will have ten teams in action, down a few teams on last year.

However, we know that they will give of their very best and hopefully many of them will come through and then proceed to the national finals which will take place in Athlone in May.

Through to the semi-finals and finals are the badminton team from Taghmon, the chess Under-16 team from Gorey, the Under-13 choir from Ballycanew, the Under-10 draughts team from BannowBallymitty, the Under-12 boys' handball team from Horeswood, the Under-15 boys' handball team from Kilmore, the girls' Under-15 soccer team from BreeDavidstown, the Under-13 boys', Under13 girls' and Under-16 girls' table-tennis teams from the Bannow-Ballymitty Area.

The draws, times of events and venues will be posted out to the county, and team managers will be notified as soon as possible. Team managers should bring their teams directly to the chosen venue where they will sign in and not to the official head office.

As P.R.O. I will be trying to get around to as many of the events as I can during the day, but I will also be tied up with Leinster official duties, so I am asking team managers to take notes on their games and to forward reports to me at redcow2@eircom.net or call me on 086-1980775 with details. I look forward to your co-operation in this matter.

The county swimming finals are to be held in New Ross on Saturday, April 24. Closing date for receipt of entries to County Secretary, Eilish Kehoe, is April 12.

The county athletic finals will take place on Sunday, June 13, and the closing date for entries is May 21. The county team finals are in Páirc Charman on Saturday, May 8.
