Denis Johnston Memorial Cup

Athlone’s last match against Mullingar 2 was played last Wednesday and ended with a 2-2 draw which was sufficient for the Athlone team to compete in the final of the Denis Johnston Memorial Cup last Friday. The Athlone quartet travelled to play Mullingar 1and were very unlucky to lose by just the minimum. 

Tomasz Koza and Dave Costello won their match 2-1 while Jacinta Digby and Sine Mac Farlane were beaten 0-2. Tomasz and Jacinta won their mixed doubles 2-0, Sine and Dave lost 0-2, the combined totals being 5-4 to the home team.

This competition has been organised for the past three years by David Cornally, Mullingar captain and the winning teams have been Longford, Athlone and Mullingar respectively.
