Ciáran and Ducksy Lose Out to Dublin

Hard luck to Ciáran and Ducksy in their All Ireland Senior Doubles defeat to Dublin yesterday in Abbeylara. The Talbots Inch duo really put it up to their opponents when taking the first set 21-11, and then coming back from 17-8 down in the second to level at 19-19. A great pick up and kill by Eoin Kennedy denied them certain victory, with the Dubliners levelling the match when taking the game 21-19. In the third, and deciding set, Kilkenny trailed 13-10 when the Liffeysiders went up the gears to win eight out of the next nine points to secure the title with a 21-11 win. 
Although underdogs for the final, the Talbots Inch pair played brilliantly on the day and were very unlucky to narrowly lose a wonderful final before a packed gallery at the Longford venue.
