Div. 3 Stay Top of the League

It was a case of the blues v the reds in our local derby with North Kildare.

While North Kildare came out on top the point and a half earned by Westmanstown was enough to keep us at the top of the table. The match was moved to the morning to counter the high temperatures. Thanks to North Kildare for their hospitality after a hard fought match.

A very successful year for Westmanstown ladies.

Well done to all members who entered any of the LBLI competitions. The finals took place over a hugely enjoyable 4 days and the weather was the warmest of the summer, with blue skies every day.

Get Together of Lady Members

Recently, the ladies committee organised a get together for our lady members who have retired from league play. These members had not got together since before Covid hit us. Up to then, they had been very active members, both by playing on leagues and on committees for very many years. 

We enjoyed a beautiful Afternoon Tea and a short roll-up afterwards. Everyone enjoyed meeting up after so long apart. The committee hope that the ladies can arrange to meet more often over the summer.

Thanks to Sheila Gleeson for the photos.
