TRALEE has new All-Ireland champions after CBS The Green’s Under 14 team won yesterday in Gormanstown College in Co Meath.

Having won the county and provincial championships over the past few months, the team of Sean Kennedy, Kevin Griffin, Seamus Bradley, David Smith along with team managers; Aine Knightly and Billy Lacey travelled to the Royal county for the finals.

Played on the round robin system, the Tralee school first met Castlebar the Connacht champions and triumphed by 5 games to 1.

Next in line were Coleraine, the Ulster kingpins and the Kerry boys came out on top by 4-2. Finally they met Kilkenny, the Leinster champions and what an encounter this proved to be with no quarter asked or taken.

After a torrid battle the sides finished level on three games each. However, on the total points accumulated after the three games Tralee were declared All Ireland champions by five aces and what a day this proved to be for Kerry Badminton.

Thanks to Junior Griffin for report.
