Marie Walshe Kells and Rachel Hogan Kilfane dft Sinead Ni hAnili and Roisin Ni Chonghaile from Galway. The Galway girls got off to a great start, the Kilkenny girls settled and Marie’s powerful left hand and Rachel’s kill shot accuracy got them back into the game winning the first game.  The Galway girls came out in the 2nd game fighting and got a good lead up. Marie and Rachel got into their stride. Marie’s serve proving too difficult to return, the Galway girls had no answer and with Rachel’s accurate right hand finishing off the rallies the Kilkenny girls winning the second game and claiming gold, this is the second gold in a week for Rachel.
