The ladies were back on the oche on Thursday night last and it was the meeting of near neighbours The Residence and the Joshua Tree on Blarney Street that definitely caught the eye.
The Joshua Tree opened this Red Cove Inn sponsored ladies A division match with double success as first Eileen Jones and then Siobhan Keohane both had 2/0 wins over Yvonne O’Brien and Claire Fielding respectively.
However it was the Residence who kept their powder dry to go forward and take the remaining three games through Caroline Coutts, Michelle Gould and Maria Healy all scoring tension packed 2/1 wins over Mary Nugent, Breda Barrett and Marian Hayes for an exciting home win.
River Lane scored another win for Blarney Street also in the Ladies A division as they journeyed across to Tower Street and a meeting with Ma Dulleas.
River Lane ladies who were winners on the night were Jo Mackle, Nula Madden and Noreen O’Brien while points winners for Ma Dulleas were Kathryn Hewitt and Rita Hannigan.
Over in the ladies B division league which is also sponsored by the Red Cove Inn, it was a double loss for Ma Dulleas as their second squad went down to home side the Gallows with Pauline Costigen, Helen Lawton and Sinead Worboys all chalking up wins, as against the two from Ma’s coming from Dee Fitzgibbon and Kay Santry.
Glenryan 2 played host to the Red Cove Inn and claimed three of the five points available to them with wins from Mary O’Connor, Sharon Lynch and Allison Carroll Goulding while two points went to the away team through Aileen Callnan and Gillian Hegarty.
