Last Sunday the teams again travelled south to Co. Cork, this time to Donoughmore, where Donoughmore Tug of War club hosted the 640kg National competition. 8 teams took part: Boley, Lakehill, Castlegregory, Donoughmore, Mulcair, Mighty Oaks, G&B & Mixed
Just as the competition started, so did the rain, which made the ground conditions very greasy. However, this lead to some great battles with very little between the teams.
G&B were dominant in the round robin finishing on maximum points, with Castlegregory finishing in 2nd. These 2 teams met in the final. G&B have been the favourites all season, and with top points, were the team to beat. Castlegregory have gone from strenght to strenght this season, consistently in the top 4 since winning the National 600kg and becoming a Senior level team. The bronze went to Mulcair, a very young, but very strong team that are definitely improving week after week.
Castlegregory certainly put up a battle to G&B in the final, however G&B proved to strong and in 2 straight ends they added the National 640kg title to a very successful season.
