Congratulations to the Barton Shield panel on reaching the All Ireland Final! Kinsale defeated Munster Senior Cup champions on Sunday morning, and beat Castletroy in the afternoon. Both matches were incredibly close. The report and photos can be seen at:
The Junior Cup team lost out to the eventual winners Clonmel on Saturday morning. The match was close but the experience shown by Clonmel proved to be decisive.
Eoghan has been in great form, as he backed up his win in the Connacht U14 Championship with a third place finish at the Leinster U14 Championship this week.
It was an incredible day at Dundrum House as our Jimmy Bruen Shield team bought home our first national pennant.
It was a fantastic day, with incredible golf seen. The Amateurs won on the day, but the real winners were the deserving causes. With a little push the amount raised could break the €5,000 – and that would be an incredible achievement. On behalf of Ger, Ian, Cathal and John I would like to thank all those who donated, the sponsors, the caddies and spectators for making the Challenge such a massive success.
The collection boxes will be in the pro shop until the weekend, or you can donate online at http://www.isgolfcoaching.com/pro-shop-challenge.
It was a busy weekend at Farrangalway and at St Andrews, congratulations to Eugene O’Callaghan – winner of the Captains Prize, and to John Murphy, winner of the St Andrews Links Trophy John proudly wearing his club top.
