    Ireland’s two-times World and European Para Badminton champion Niall McVeigh remained upbeat after his shock defeat at the hands of Andrew Martin the English No1 who for once got the better of the Poyntzpass 24 year old in the final of the European Para Badminton Championships in Spain. Despite being “a little bit disappointed” Niall admitted to having “learned a lot from today’s match and it will make me a better player.”

    Everything had been going to plan as far as his preparations were concerned and in the preliminary round robin matches Niall was his usual no-nonsense self taking only 23 minutes to end the challenges of Grzegorz Jednaki 21/11 21/6 and Isaak Daglish 21/14 21/12 while England’s Jack Shephard fared only a few minutes better on court with McVeigh winning 21/16 21/10 to book his place in the semi-finals.

Nigel was impressive throughout the morning with victories against Norman Lau and Mark Brady along the way to reach the final.

    In the women's singles Ruth Kilkenny showed she is still on top on her game after her retirement some years ago from the International circuit.  In the final Ruth played Lucie Corcoran, and took the title 21-16  21-13.
