Galway Ladies contest the All Ireland u-14 A final against Dublin on Saturday in St Brigid’s GAA Club, Kiltoom, Co Roscommon (3.45pm).
In the space of three short weeks, Elaine Ware has turned the junior squash scene in Ireland on its head. Three weeks ago in Galway, this exciting Carlow player took the U-15 Connacht Junior Open and this week she travelled to Belfast where she took the U-17 title in emphatic fashion. Seeded 6th, she moved up to play U-17 as she just reached her 15th birthday. She defeated fellow club-mate Katelyn Doran in the first round, Doran went two up following a 1/6 deficit in the first game but Ware remained calm and kept working Katelyn around the court eventually winning 3/2. This turned out to be Elaine’s most difficult match as she strolled through her semi-final and defeated Jennifer Hegarty the No 1 seed from Galway 3/0.
