The Irish Canoe Polo championships were held in the Claddagh Basin in Galway.

Kilkenny College pupils, David and Alex McClure, Martin Mulhall and Matthew and Clodagh Cassin were on the Kilkenny Aqua Canoe Club team which won the Senior Division 3 final.

This was an excellent achievement; the final was nail biting with the College students over coming a determined Kilcock club team.

It was particularly sweet revenge as Kilkenny had lost out to Kilcock in a golden goal play-off earlier in the summer.

Matthew Cassin and David McClure also played at Division 2 level and contributed to a 3rd place finish for the Kilkenny club.

These students had a very busy summer competing in canoe polo with their club and competition will continue throughout the winter in the Munster league at the University of Limerick 50 metre pool.
