Congratulations to Adam Mesbur & Nick FitzGibbon, who won the Master Pairs competition held over the weekend of 7/8 December in the Templeogue Centre, retaining their tilte. Indeed, Adam and Nick have a wonderful record in this prestigious event; this represents their sixth victory as a partnership, and each of them has also won it once with another partner. Second place went to Padraig & Micheal O Briain, with Ciaran Coyne & David Walsh third. The main prizewinners are pictured below with CBAI President Neil Burke. Full results may be found here.

Our thanks to Fearghal O’Boyle, Mairead Basquille, and Bernard Higgins for an excellent directing job as always, ably assisted by caddies Faye and Rebecca. A field of 116 pairs in a barometer Swiss format kept them all on their toes for the weekend.
