Davis College Mallow

Davis College Mallow lost out in the Munster Final of the Irish Schools Senior Championship yesterday but only after giving favourites De La Salle Waterford a tough test in the final.  The finals took place in Cahir Park and it was a credit to the course and specially the staff that the course was open.  A modified course was in play, with the competition taking place over two loops of the nine holes on the clubhouse side of the River Suir.  Davis College had a good win over Crescent College (Limerick) in the semi-final, winning 3-2.  De La Salle had beaten Douglas Community School in their semi-final, they closed out the first three points as they proved too strong for the Cork side.
