St Patricks GAA Last Man Standing competition
We had 26 people remaining in our competition at the start of the weekend and by the time the Division 1 Final between Dublin and Galway was played it was down to 13 people who had successfully predicted that Laois, Armagh and Roscommon would each win their respective finals. With Dublin winning the Division 1 Final by 18 points to 14 it was reduced to 12 people and we were down to the score tie breaker to decide our competition winner.
Congratulations John Slattery (Jnr) captain of our 2006 Senior Championship winners! With a predicted score of 1-16 (19 points) to 14 points John was only one point away from the actual match scoreline. Very hard luck to Shane Mitchell who had a predicted score of 1-16 to 0-13; only 2 points away.
Thanks to everyone for taking part and I hope it was a bit of fun and that you will all take part again in 2019.
