In the Div. 1 doubles Martin Ormonde and Michael Murray were successful against Aidan Barry and Gerry Burke. In the mixed Div. 1 Eugene O'Mahoney and Nuala Smith prevailed against Michael Murray and Aine Lonergan.In the men's Div. 4, the old partnership of Jonathon Cooney and Aidan Gaughran were too strong for Frank Darrer and Mark Cummins. In the ladies Div. 1 doubles Cora Morrissey and Mary Wall defeated the experienced Trish Keating and Nuala Smith. In the Div. 5 competitions, Alison Walsh and Evelyn Buckley had a good week, Alison won the ladies singles against Sandra Charles, and the doubles with Evelyn Buckley.
