Home International Championship GC Result

The eighth Home International Championship was hosted by the CAI at Carrickmines last weekend. England have won all previous tournaments, but they did not win this one!

Congratulations to Patsy Fitzgerald, Mark Stephens, Simon Williams (Captain) and Charlie von Schmieder, who won all three matches with excellent play, good spirit and nerve. See GC Home Internationals - Croquet Scores for full details. Tasty lunches and Saturday's evening meal were catered by No-Hassle Catering. The lawns were quite fast, but the hoops relatively welcoming, which encouraged 21-foot shots and enterprising play.

Thanks to Carrickmines for once again being a high-class venue for this Championship, and providing beautiful weather.
