St. Pats take first national gold of the season

The first day of the National Indoor Tug of War Championships took place recently and will  will run through to the New Year.

The first National title for contention was the 720kg, and was held in Kingscourt in Co. Cavan.

 After a very tough round-robin section, the semi-finals featured St. Pats V Mountain View “B” & Clonmany v Mountain View “A”. At the end of these two mighty battles, St. Pats and Clonmany moved through to the final, leaving the Mountain View teams to battle for bronze.

 Mountain View “A” took bronze from Mountain View “B” in the bronze medal decider.

 In the final, St. Pats proved too strong for the Donegal team Clonmany and won the 720kg Championship and the first title of the season.

The St. Pats 720kg panel was Gary Conway, Hugh Óg Conway, Tommy Griffin, Declan Griffin, Martin Shields, Colm Durnin, Warren Conway & Hugh Fitzpatrick, Coach by Hugh Mór Conway
