St. Coman’s star Fiona Tully teamed up with her DCU team-mate Meadhbh Ní Dhálaigh to regain the 40 x 20 World Collegiate (Third Level) Doubles title they last won two years ago with an excellent win in the final against Minnesota State’s Ciana Ní Curraoin and Maddie Kennedy.

The Roscommon/Dublin combination have been very successful in the last few years and their teamwork was plain to see in the first game, which they took 21-5.

The Galway/USA combination improved in the second game but it wasn’t enough as it went DCU’s way, 21-17. Ciana had earlier beaten Fiona in the singles final 21-11, 21-3, where the difference in fitness really told in the second game.

 

DCU students Fiona Tully (St. Coman’s, Roscommon town) and Meadhbh Ní Dhálaigh who won the USA Colleges Open Doubles title in Texas, continuing an extraordinary partnership that has seen them win eight out of the nine colleges titles on offer in both Ireland and the USA over the last three years.
