Aoilean and Denise travelled to Leixlip for the Leinster Final where they played Leah and Rachel Dunphy from Laois which they won convincly 21-9 21-11. Unfortunately they had no opposition from Connacht in the All Ireland semi final, the Kilkenny girls played their All Ireland Final in O’ Loughlins, Kilkenny where they played Laura Stack and Niamh McCarthy from Limerick. This win keeps this title in Clogh for a second year as Aishling Maher/Mary Buggy won this title Last year.

The Kilkenny girls played great handball, with great serving and good all round use of the Alley they forged ahead to win in two games. With Denise’s serving and retriving impossible balls off the backwall and Aoilean’s serve and her ability to hit the ball in the air proved to be a great combination. They defeated a very good Limerick pair 21-12 21-9 in a very exciting final. These girls put in great effort leading up to the final.
