Many Rathmines juniors took part in all sections.
It was great to see so many young players qualifying to play in the Masters Section. A fantastic achievement for transition year student, Conor O’Donnell, who organised a great tournament, and topped it off by winning the Masters.
Highlights of the weekend for Rathmines:
Sean Hunter winner of the Challangers section
