Waltz Competition sponsored by Sweeney Oil.
Despite the very poor weather conditions it was great to see the club fundraiser well supported with almost forty teams taking part. Tournament director Jerry Desmond continued his fine run of form and carried John O Halloran , Gerry Murphy and John Ger David over the line by a single point from Sean Daly, Gerry Donnellan, Gerry Bodkin and Kevin Scully. The best ladies team were Maria Coen, Marian Mulryan, Ann Higgins and Sr. Agnes.(76 pts). The overall winners had 89 pts with 88 coming second. Well done to Mark and his team on the condition of the course and greens.
Good luck to Jimmy McHugh who plays in the K-CLUB this week in the final of the All-Ireland Medal competition having won the qualifiers firstly in Tuam and then in Athlone.
The very popular WINTER LEAGUE will commence the first weekend in NOVEMBER with teams of three and one score to count each week. Entry is 5 euro and the entry sheet is now up on noticeboard.
