It was nip and tuck in the last week of the Winter League to finalise the top spots. First place was a pretty safe bet but the race for second it could hardly have been tighter.

Securing top marks in five of the seven weeks, team ASH were never behind and are this year's Winter League champions and win prizes generously sponsored by our friends in Daisy Boutique, Carrickmacross.

It wasn't all plain sailing for Team Beech, but they maintained their consistent form over the last few weeks and held onto take 2nd place from unlucky Team Cherry who also played very well over the last few weeks.  

Congratulations to Teams ASH and BEECH and well done to every single player who got into the spirit of this fun, inclusive event, who got out and played and did their best for their team. There were category prizes up for grabs too. Congratulations to those individuals on their great play.
