Deina Vesko was the star turn at the Munster Senior (Premier) and Grade E Badminton Closed Championships in Killarney Sports & Leisure Centre on Sunday with the Listowel woman winning three provincial titles on a day when the host county’s players performed extremely well.

Vesko started off by winning the Grade E singles, and then went on to win the Ladies Doubles with Brid Murphy, beating Samira Hayes and Helen Browne in the final. To finish with a treble Vesko then won the Mixed Doubles with partner Paddy Redmond.

Redmond also reached the semi-finals of the Men’s Grade E Singles, coming up against a very strong Ethan Tritschler who went on to win the match.

On the other side of the draw Helen Browne and Cathal Donovan fought a good battle in the semi-finals of the Mixed Doubles.
