West Waterford retain South East League Trophy

Manager Stephen Spillane took his South East league squad to Fermoy on Sunday in quest of two consecutive  South East league titles. Standing in the way was a youthful East Cork team who also had eyes on the coveted trophy.  With summer rules golf back in play this was always going to be a tough battle and after 9 holes the result was very much in the balance.  East Cork claimed the first two Bruen matches winning over Andy Hickey and Tomas Breathnach, and Col O Callaghan and Brian Murphy respectively. John O Mahoney and Owen O Keeffe opened West Waterford’s account, winning 5 and 4, to spur on the ensuing Purcell pairs.  Des Cleary and Tom Butler won 5 and 4 to level the tie at 2 matches each.  Pat and Sonny Landers rallied to claim victory on the 18th.  This left Kenny Walsh and Pat Higgins needing a half to seal victory but they went one better and won their match on the 18th. Well done to all the players who played throughout the league and to our never say die manager Stephen Spillane.  The South East League cup is safely back in the trophy cabinet at West Waterford for another year.


Comeragh Oil Winter league Final.

A hugely successful Winter League concluded over the weekend with Ballyduff recording a decisive victory over a battling Helvick team.  From the outset Ballyduff looked to be favourites and despite a few close results they carried that tag in style.

The Ballyduff team was Brian Foley Sean Drohan Lanson Kelly Pat Higgins Brian Hilliard Declan Walsh Michael St Ledger and Jack Ronayne.  Helvick team was Philip Spratt David Condon Brian Murphy Frank North Kevin Kelly Percy Walsh and Diarmuid Horgan.  Thank you to all the teams that participated in the league and a special word of thanks  to our sponsor Comeragh Oil. Presentation of prizes will be held on Saturday 20th of April in conjunction with our Sunshine Classic presentation.  All members of the winning and runner-up teams are requested to attend.
