Gold for Lakehill in Switzerland
Approximately forty clubs from across Europe attended a major international tournament hosted by the Mosnang club in the beautiful surroundings of North East Switzerland last weekend. Ireland was well represented with four clubs attending, Ballygar, Fairywater, Gortletteragh and Lakehill. Lakehill pulled well in the men’s 680kg competition qualifying for the semi finals where they faced host club, Mosnang. This was a tough contest which went to a third and deciding end but the Mayo team dug deep to progress to the final. Lakehill recovered well and produced a powerful display to defeat OKIA from the Netherlands in straight ends to take a well deserved gold medal. Ballygar, Fairywater & Gortletteragh pulled well in the men’s 640kg competition on Sunday and were unlucky not to progress as all three missed out on quarter final places on cautions.
