performances in the ladies club competitions from May to September at West Waterford Golf Club.

following additional awards for the 2018 golfing year;

ILGU Junior Medal

ILGU Silver Spoon for returning the lowest aggregate of three Nett stroke play scores in the club for the


ILGU Bronze Medal which is awarded to Catherine for the lowest aggregate Nett score over four Monthly

medal rounds in her category at West Waterford Golf Club. As a result Catherine now qualifies together

with the Silver Medal category winner to represent West Waterford Golf Club in the National Gold Medal

Finals on 15 May 2019 at Headfort Golf Club in County Meath. This will be a novel representation from the

club as the Silver medal winner for 2018 is Catherine’s mother Deirdre and indeed maybe a first (mother

and daughter) for the ILGU National medal finals.

In the 15 months since starting playing competitive golf Catherine has steadily reduced her playing

handicap by 15 shots and Catherine was included on the south Munster U-16 coaching panel for 2018 by

the Irish Ladies Golfing Union (ILGU).

Throughout the summer Catherine has represented her club West Waterford in many of the scheduled

ILGU Junior Girls golf events getting the opportunity to play in the following Golf Clubs, Tipperary,

Charleville, Dromoland, Douglas, Athenry and Castlerea.

The Munster Schools Senior & Junior cups were held recently on a cold and blustery day in East Cork Golf

Club on 5th October 2018. Our own Catherine Ruane represented Ard Scoil na nDéise Dungarvan in the

Individual Senior Section scoring 37 Stableford points on her first outing in East Cork Golf Club, with the overall honours going to a student from St Mary’s Mallow scoring one better on 38 Stableford points.
