Irish Inter-varsity 2015

Hi guys!

It has been a while since the last update. We are bringing you some good news from Irish Intervarsity 2015 which had taken place in Queen’s University Belfast last 6th and 7th March. Our Table Tennis Men’s team recently emerged as the Runner-up, bringing back a silver medal for UCC. The competition was tougher this year compared to the previous year as we witnessed participation from 6 universities. Although UCC team still could not beat the reigning champion, UCD, coach Conn Higgins was satisfied with the tremendous show from all players.

In the Men’s Singles event, UCC player Declan O’Brien proudly retains his title as the Irish Intervarsity champion. Facing a tough opponent from UCD, Max Frick in the semi-final stage with a 3-1 comeback, Declan admits it gave him a competitive advantage to win easily in the final match with a straight set win against Kris Foster. Declan, who is currently a 2nd year Accountancy student in UCC, is looking forward for another challenge next year to make his way for a third title in a row.
