Carlton Irish Para Championships 2014

Niall McVeigh Ireland’s World Para Badminton Champion was in the unusual position of coming in to a 4 Nations Para Badminton Championships seeking a win over England’s Andrew Martin to banish the memory of a European campaign which ended in a victory for the English No 1.  Niall was to turn in a series of performances which will rank with those who saw it as simply ‘memorable’.
