Cathal Brugha last weekend won the 2020 Brother Philip Cup at UL Sport, fighting out a tight final against North Dublin.
In a change to format, the tournament ran in a cup weekend style, in a full 30x20m pitch, emulating the Irish Senior Cup layout.
The competition ran for a full day on Saturday with the 5th/6th and 3rd/4th place matches as well as the final taking place on the Sunday morning.
Sandycove SC came out as 5th place finishers beating Half Moon, 10-9. St Vincents WPC finished in 3rd place beating Corrib WPC, 8-2.
North Dublin and Cathal Brugha with the Ulster men coming out on top finishing 13-11.
The competition and the changed format was a success and a vital part of the preparation process for the upcoming Irish Senior Cup in Bangor, 23rd – 25th April 2020.
Ireland Water Polo would like to say a special thank you to our Tournament Director, Ian Hanrahan, Delegate, Conor Sheridan and their team of officials and to all players, coaches and clubs for participating and embracing the new format.
