The scoring was high, with 92 points required to take first place. Very well done to the winning team of Mary Meegan, Angie O’Hara, Joanne Lynch and Aine Kirk. They were three points ahead of the runners up Elaine Ward, Grainne Mullins, Mary Dooley and Siobhan Kearney. In third place, a point further behind, was Teresa Oakes, Geraldine Hoare, Paula McKeown and Catherine Connolly.
