Confidence will be high for Sligo doubles pairing of Shane Bruen and Martin Cooney following their terrific singles success in Dublin on Saturday. The duo are aiming for more success this time in the Masters B doubles final. Both Bruen & Cooney are very strong at this level as has shown in their Connacht final win over Roscommon's John Kennedy & Seamie Connolly by 21-15, 21-2. The duo made the long journey to Dungarvan to take on Tipperary & Munster Champions Paul Maher & David Tobin and again had an excellent 21-8, 21-10 victory. Their opponents again will be from Wexford . John Roche & Damien Kelly will provide the opposition. A tough task awaits the Sligo men but the Connacht champions have trained very hard for this one and will want to end the season on a high with another All-Ireland title. On current form Bruen & Cooney will fancy their chances of going all the way in Crinkle.
