Bruen & Cooney aiming for final

Martin Cooney & Shane Bruen Masters A doubles

Bruen & Cooney aiming for final

Sligo handball doubles pairing of Shane Bruen & Martin Cooney take on Tipperary’s David Maloney & John O'Donoghue for a place in this year’s All-Ireland 40 x 20 Masters A doubles final.  Bruen & Cooney had a narraow 21-20,21-18 win over Mayo’s Jason Judge & Pat Foy in the Connacht final.  

Their opponents David Maloney & John O’ Donoghue defeated Clare’s Declan Frawley & Fergal Coughlan in their  Munster final. 

Bruen & Cooney won last year’s All-Ireland Masters B doubles 60 x 30 title.  Both players are playing at a high standard with Bruen already advancing to the Masters B singles 40 x 20  All-Ireland final following last weekend’s home semi-final victory over Clare’s Tom Kirby.   A further step up will be required if the Sligo duo are to reach this year’s All-Ireland doubles finals
