Duffy & Hughes Crowned Squealing Pig Border Champions

Posted: June 28, 2016 in Uncategorized

 

Pakie Duffy & Evin Hughes were the main guests of honour at last weekend’s Squealing Pig Border Navigation Championship prizegiving. All previous winners of the championship were invited to attend to commemorate the presentation of the new perpetual cups for the champion driver and navigator. The appearance of an old Sheet 8 map added to the atmosphere and brought back memories of yesteryear. It was a well-received night that was enjoyed by all.

 

While this was Pakie’s 4th driver’s title and Evin’s 2nd navigator’s title, this was the first time they won the championship as a team. It completed a championship double following their National Championship success. The pair clinched the Squealing Pig championship following wins in Longford, Donegal & Cavan backed up by one 4th and one 5th place finish. Michael & Ciaran Tynan clinched the runners-up spot thanks to their Drumlin win and consistent top five finishes. Martin Tynan was the third overall driver with Ruadhri Nash the third overall navigator. Keith McConnon/Micheal McCluskey and Aiden Sherry/Oisin Sherlock were the top Semi-Expert and Novice crews respectively.
