In the B event Des Windsor Mc Glynn may take the honours while Michael Flynn is top seed in the C competition. Rob Johnson is likely to be the over 45 winner. Michele Culligan and Stephane Kenny are favourites for honours in the ladies B and C events.
Longford’s Lorcan Gearty/Marcin Jusczyk are the formidable men’s A doubles duo while the Rob Kearney/Paul Murphy partnership are strong contenders in the B doubles. Lisa Brennan and Melanie Whyte should be too competitive for the other lady combinations. In the mixed doubles the wily duo from Mullingar, Margaret Tracey and Roddy Corbett are fancied to prevail.
