Robert Redmond should also be proud of his performance this weekend with superb wins over Brendan O Donoghue and Robert Murphy. As the National Coach I believe Robert's day will come soon but Michael Judge was on a different planet this weekend as he showed his skill and experience to lift the Irish Title.
A big thank you must go to Marion and the Staff at the Ivy Rooms for the great facilities for the Championship weekend.
