Comeragh Oil Winter League

The qualifying section of our winter league finished in style and on schedule on Sunday 24th March.  If its drama you want then read on.  Glenbeg who went into the final round in 4th position put in a sparkling performance to top the table and relegate Kinsalebeg to second place in a tie breaker.  Tight at the top, then how about the bottom.  Three teams Mount Odell, Carriglea and Old Boro separated by just four points were in a battle for the eight and final qualifying spot.  In the end it was the Old Boro who pipped Carriglea by just a single point to claim qualification for the knockout stage. So eight teams will fight it out in singles matchplay and believe me we have quite a few interesting matchups to look forward to.  The action gets underway this week and we are allowing two weeks to complete the top eight matches.  Team details and contacts are available at the office or by contacting pat Power  on 0876611276 .  We wish the very best of luck to all teams in the playoffs and a special word of thanks to all the teams who contributed to another exciting Winter League at West Waterford.
