Loughrea Mixed Doubles Open

Both couples got byes into the quarter finals and went on to qualify for the finals of both competitions respectively. They found it difficult to cope with the damp windy conditions, by the lake, in Loughrea in Sunday’s final and had to settle with the runners up spots.
