Loughmacrory Boys & Girls travel to Tipp for Feile challenge
Loughmacrory will be Tyrone’s representatives at the All Ireland feile event in Tipperary this weekend and the club will be sending both a boys and girls team off to compete.
The girls under 14 team will be spearheaded by All Ireland under 14 singles champion Mairead Fox who has been enjoying a superb year so far. She will also be targeting the All Ireland feile skills title.

The Loughmacrory girls will compete in the highest division at feile and will face a tough challenge against Tuamgraney (Clare), Leixlip (Kildare), Cullohill (Laois) and Galmoy (Kilkenny). No Tyrone girls team has ever won the division one feile prize before.
Joining Mairead on the Loughmacrory team in Kilcolman for the girls main competition will be Alanna McGaughey, Dearbhail Fox, Niamh Curran and Aoibhe Curran.
The Loughmacrory boys team will compete in division three in Tipperary as it will be a young team going down which includes Eoin McElholm, Gary McAleer, Zak Devine, Conor Fox and team captain Conan McElholm.
They will meet Cullohill (Laois), Windgap (Kilkenny), Boherbue (Cork) and Downpatrick (Down) in their section with all their games taking place in Carrick on Suir.
It promises to be an exciting weekend for the 25 strong group of players, managers and supporters heading off from Loughmacrory on Friday for the big parade in Thurles on Friday evening.

McElduff stars again in Mount Talbot
Conor McElduff added the Mounttalbot Men’s Open Singles title to his recent list of honours on Saturday evening. A semi final win over Mayo’s Vinny Moran was followed by a top class final display against Tyrone’s Darragh Daly to win that final 15-1, 15-10. Daly was also in superb form to deny Armagh’s Conall McCavitt in the semi final by 31-5.
Next up for Conor is that unprecedented 3-in-a-row bid for the Men’s Open Irish Nationals title in Breaffy in 3 weeks time.
Niall Kerr also secured the MAsters title in Mount Talbot as Tyrone’s only Cup winner of the event, defeating Clare’s Fergal Coughlan in the final by 19-11.
