Our Trip To Castlebar


We all arrived in Castlebar.  We were staying in a lovely B&B, Carragh House.  We set off to play matches on Saturday morning some as early as 8am.  It rained for the most part of the day.


Stephen came down to support and watch us play.  The standard was very high.  All the Monkstown LTC players played very well.  While some players were outside playing in the rain others were inside nice and dry playing table tennis.  Even Stephen had a go at the table tennis! 


 After all the matches were finished we all went out for something nice to eat.  Two girls from Mullingar joined the Monkstown LTC girls for dinner. After dinner we went back to the B&B.  At this stage we were all exhausted and in need of a good nights sleep!


The next morning we got packed and ready to go but first we all had semi-finals to play.  We had packed rain-jackets for the matches on Sunday but we needed sun-cream instead! 


We would like to thank Castlebar Tennis Club for organising the whole tournament.  We would like to thank Maria, Caron and Gareth for all their hard work and the Mums for bringing us down.  Also Stephen, for making the effort to come.  And we look forward to going down next year.
