Delaney, Anthony Martin and Dan Breen travelled to Salthill, Galway on Saturday 1st December, 2012. They defeated Nenagh, Co. Tipperary and Coolgreaney, Co. Wexford.

Congratulations to all the Kells lads on two great achievements.
The 3rd Level Colleges 40 x 20 Team championships were held in St. Joseph’s Wexford. Representing Waterford Institute of Technology (W.I.T.) on the Open Team was Peter Funchion (Kells), Patrick Funchion (Kells), Ger McGrath (Kells) and Noel Holohan (Wexford). WIT defeated Carlow IT in the quarter final and DCU in the semi-final. They then met last year’s Open Team winners UCD’s Martin Mulkerrins, Sam Temple, Marc McGowan and Barry Nash in the final. The final went down to the wire but in the end WIT won out with 11 aces to spare. WIT had then completed the Team double as they added this 40 x 20 All-Ireland Inter-Varsity’s team title to their 60 x 30 team win of a month ago. Clogh are hosting a juvenile U 15/16 Tournament and Kells representatives are Roy Cullen, Jack Crehan, Conor O’Dwyer and Brian Farrell. Good luck to them all. Clogh are also holding their annual Eddie Somers Tournament and the Kells participants are Brendan Burke and Diarmuid Burke. Best of luck to them both.
