The Junior section saw the Island Tavern win 3-2 against the River lane, Ma Dullea’s 1-4 Jack Fords, Muskerry Arms 4-1 Residence and the Fox & Hounds win 5-0 away to the Tower Bar. Dylan Twomey was first in for the Fox & Hounds against Jason O’Flynn and is was Twomey that won 2-0. Next up was Paul O’Sullivan for the tower facing Brian Wall. O’Sullivan went 1 up but Wall brought it back to 1-1 to force a deciding leg, and it was Wall that was first to hit the winning double making it 2-0 to the away side.
