Scoil Mhuire’s under-16 and under-19 Badminton teams excelled this year. The under 14s and under 16s were crowned county champions in January, defeating all other schools in Tipperary and qualifying for the Munster Finals in Limerick. Our under 19 team was unlucky to lose to a strong Loreto Clonmel team in the county final but was delighted to represent Tipperary at the Munster Finals when the Loreto girls were unable to travel.

The Munster Finals were held in the University of Limerick Arena on January 30th 2014 and despite very strong competition the U-16 and U-19 Scoil Mhuire teams emerged victorious.

The honour of representing Munster on All-Ireland Finals day in Gormanston College on Wednesday 19th March was a marvellous experience for both teams. Following an opening parade of colour, competition commenced.

The Under 16 team defeated the Leinster champions St. Mary’s Naas and Ulster Champions Cookstown before their final match against Sacred Heart Secondary School, Westport, representing Connacht. Despite playing valiantly, Scoil Mhuire was defeated in this final match but all involved were very happy to receive their runners-up medals from the President of Badminton Ireland.

Under-16 Team: Aoife Walsh (c), Aoife Roche, Margaret Purcell, Tríona Walsh.

The Under 19 team’s fortunes were similar. Having defeated the Connacht and Ulster champions in their two opening matches, they came up against the might of the Leinster champions – Loreto Kilkenny. Scoil Mhuire was unlucky to lose all four singles games but battled bravely to win the two doubles matched, ensuring a runner-up position for Scoil Mhuire at the senior grade.

Under-19 Team: Deirdre Purcell (c), Róisín Crowley, Ellie Hogan, Laura Dillon-Dunphy.
