Amber - Champion of Munster
Recently crowned champion of Clare, Amber Nolan, went on to capture the Munster under 11 schools handball title in the finals played in Tralee on Sunday 3rd February. In the final Amber defeated the Limerick champion 11 - 6, 11 - 4 to take the title. Amber now goes on to represent her school, her county and her province in the All-Ireland series to be played in Cavan in March. Congratulations again Amber.
Luke Sugrue from 5th class was victorious in the under 11 Munster badminton finals in both the boys doubles and mixed doubles on sunday 3rd February. In both finals Luke defeated Cork opposition to record fine wins. Unfortunately luke's strong performances were not replicated by other Clare team members and thus Clare will not advance in the competition. Fair play to Luke though, he could not have done better.
