Well done to Neil and Barbara Burke and the mid-Leinster Region on a very successful Duais An Uachtarain over the weekend of 21/22 September in Westmanstown. A particularly welcome development was the addition of a one-session Intermediate B & Novice event. Both events were expertly directed, as always, by the team of Fearghal O’Boyle, Mairead Basquille, and Diarmuid Reddan.

The Duais was won by Sean Connor & Jim Doyle, with Anna Onishuk & Cian Holland in second place, and Michael McDonagh & Pat McDevitt third. The best Regional Masters were Damien Nee & Patrick Conroy, the best Area Masters were Rita Lacey & Tony Hughes, while the best Intermediate As were Eileen O’Hare & Maeve Delaney. Full results are here.

The winners of the Intermediate B event were Donla Twomey & Jim Manning, with Sarann Doyle & Kay Falkner Sheridan second, and Kathryn Ryan & Frances Donnelly third. The best Novice prize was shared by Mary Guilmartin & Adrian Taylor and Maggs Jensen & Aine Mulvaney. Full results are here.
