Ireland's Scott Evans and Chloe Magee, the top seeds, are both through to the finals of the Carlton Irish Badminton Open at Baldoyle.

In the men's singles, Evans beat German Marcel Reuter 21-12, 21-8 in this morning's quarter-finals to advance to the last four.

In the semi-finals he defeated Lucas Claerbout of France 21-17, 21-18. 

Magee is through to the ladies' final. She beat England's Sarah Milne 24-22, 21-14 in this morning's quarter-finals, before knocking out Beatriz Corrales of Spain 21-18, 21-23, 21-12 in the semis.

However, there was disappointment in the mixed doubles as Chloe Magee and her brother Sam - who had been seeded two - were beaten in a thrilling quarter-final going down 21-16, 13,-21, 26-24 to fifth seeded Germans Max Schwenger and Carla Nelte.
