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.
