Railway Union had great success at the recent 4FunTeam Qualifier in the RDS, with two of our Railway Teams qualifying for the Final in Westmonstown next May.

Well done to Elaine Fitzpatrick, Mary Aird, Rita McAlinden, Martin Quigley and Sue Power who were on the winning teams in their groups and qualify for the Final. Also well done to Anne, Kelly, Carol Horan and Colette Stokes who came second in their group.

Don't forget, there is another qualifier on Monday 29 January in Miltown if anyone would like to throw their hat into the ring to qualify for the final! 

Martin Cowley Cup
Martin Cowley Cup

The first major competition of this season the Martin Cowley Cup took place on Monday 23rd Oct.

Storm Ophelia interfered with the first session of our annual Club Pairs, but all clouds have a silver lining as it now meant that we had a bigger entry of a whopping 32 pairs, unprecedented!! It was run by John Royds with his usual aplomb and everyone had a very enjoyable night.

The worthy winners were  Niamh and Rachel. They were presented with the beautiful Cup by Martin Cowley, who made it back from USA just on time to participate and do the honors, it wouldn’t have been the same without him!

Other Prizewinners were

2nd Fiona and Ruth

3rd Elaine and Annmarie

Best B Moya and Anna

Best Novice Fiona and Noreen
