The Ladies had their club outing to Dromoland on Saturday where they took on Raffeen Creek GC Cork .Sandra Mooneys sister is Lady Captain there this year so they decided some time ago that there would be a Galway v Cork challenge. Tuam won on the golf course but the Cork side definitely had the edge in the singing stakes in the hotel later. Dromoland was a fabulous venue and the occasion was very sporting and extremely sociable. Tuam results : 1st.
