Irish  Mixed Foursomes

On Saturday last we played against Youghal in the opening round at Gold Coast GC.

In ideal weather conditions our team produced some great golf to record a comfortable 3.5 to 1.5 victory.  This would set up an afternoon contest with near neighbours Dungarvan in a mouth watering local derby.  With just two personnel changes we set out in anticipation of a serious test.  Through 9 holes our opponents were up in 4 matches but as we well know by now, much can change on the back 9 in the Gold Coast.  With the tie delicately balanced at 2 matches each our final pairing produced a great rally over the closing holes.  Dormy three became dormy two but the dream ended on the 17th as Dungarvan claimed victory.  Well done to them and congratulations on winning out the section with a 3-2 victory over Tramore.  We would like to thank our panel: David Condon John O Mahoney Luke Swayne Thomas Conway and Stephen Spillane.  Marie T Curran Joan Sheehan Joe Swayne June Whyte Mary Lou Carroll Deirdre Ruane and Eithne Ashby.  Thanks also to our managers, Mary Herlihy, Tom Higgins and Justin Spratt.  To the Gold Coast we say thank you for the welcome and a course in excellent condition.


Successful Fundraiser for Alzheimer Association of Ireland.

Barney Reilly and Tom Halpin were among the main organizers of a hugely successful Charity event to raise funds for this most deserving organization.  Among the events were a golf classic, a 24 hour golf marathon and a raffle.  Thanks to very generous sponsorship combined with the other events the committee raised a magnificent 5 figure sum for the association.  West Waterford is delighted to be associated with the event and Tom, Barney and the team would like to thank everybody for their support and generosity.  Well done to all concerned.  Listed below are the lucky raffle winners. Emma O Reilly, Joan Nugent, Tony Condon, James Hickey, Nuala Condon, Anette O Reilly and Paudie Halpin.
