Cahir Munroe and James O’Toole from Galway defeated Mark Doyle and Josh Kavanagh in the semi-final of the boys 13 and under doubles today on a 25-14 score line. While a frustrating day for Josh saw him also defeated in the semi-final of the 13 and under singles, on this occasion James O’Toole was the winner on a 25-14 score line however it was a brilliant achievement for Mark and Josh to make the last four of the World Championships.
