Yesterday the RBAI team of Captain Peter Kerr, JJ Logue, Ben Connolly, David Keery and Rory Sloan travelled to Royal Belfast Golf Club to contest the Irish Schools’ Matchplay, Ulster Section. In the morning semi-final the team won 4 points to 1 against Campbell College. The final was then played out against Rathmore Grammar School in the afternoon. The RBAI team played superbly winning the contest by 41/2 points to ½ a point. The standout performance in the final came from Rory Sloan who won his match 9&7.
This is the first time since 2007 RBAI have won this event and they now progress to the All-Ireland finals as the representatives from Ulster, which will be played at the Farnham Estate Golf Resort in Cavan.
