Midland Graded Open

Midland Graded Open

Over nine long nights from the 12th to the 22nd of October the Midland League ran a Graded Open tournament in Mullingar. With over a 110 entries from Longford, Westmeath, Meath, Louth, Offaly, Laois, Kildare and Dublin the competition was tough in all divisions. Everybody got at least 2 games for their entry fee and the silver service tea and biscuits combined with good hall and good spirits meant there were lots of good nights. The committee would like to thank all the participants for making the event a success and Loreto Collage for the use of their facilities. The following if the list of winners.
