Report

Rounders & Softball games were arranged between Lakelands GAA of Stillorgan in Dublin and a team of International Softball Players from America & Japan (undoubtedly from the Leinster Softball League which started up in 1982 involving 3 American Teams, 1 Japanese and 1 Irish).

The first match, played under Softball Rules ended 24-3 to the Internationals, the second game, under Rounders rules was more competitive, with the Internationals winning again 13-5.

Skryne GAA also made a trip to the USA in April, where the boys and girls played Softball matches against local schools – the Skryne boys and girls both winning one mmatch and drawing another. The Brookline coach requested a game of Rounders after their Softball games, which ended 11-all.
