Croquet Championships of County Dublin 11th to 13th June 2021


Carrickmines croquet players returned to competitive action for the Championships of County Dublin. This open tournament which was held at Carrickmines was reduced from 4 to 3 days because of Covid, but still included 5 events. The weather was great and a good time was had by all!
