Once again Shauna Clogher was first off the blocks winning the U-10 plate. Diarmuid Treacy went on to win the U-12 plate, defeating club colleague Oisin Campbell. Michael Kelleghan however was unlucky to be narrowly beaten in the U-16 plate. In the ladies Challenger Jackie Hanley played impressively to be runner-up in the final while Deirdre Kelly went on to beat her sister Mairead in the plate final.
In the Menís B grade Robert Coyle had a good run defeating a top quality opponent, Niall Flynn from Abbeylara. Liam OíCeallaigh was unlucky however to lose in the Menís B plate final to Niall Flynn. Brothers David and Jarlath Coyle both reached the Menís C semi-finals.
