Winter League “Hotting Up” Sunday last saw the climax of Round 2 in our Team Winter League. “Lang Whang” captained by Rosie Murphy are in the lead with 225 points, hotly pursued by “Tickly Tap” captained by Mary Herlihy with 224 points. Ann Rochford’s team “Roon the Ben” fill the third spot with 215 points while “Ca Canny” captained by Joan Sheehan fill the 4th spot followed by “Finn me Dot” captained by Ger Curran and “Donna Fouster” captained by Marian Hilliard. Over the next two weeks the competition switches into Matchplay format. Judging by all the scores to date, the results should be interesting. In the individual scoring Eithne Ashby was the overall winner in Round 1 while Mary Herlihy had the best individual score in Round 2.
Mary Herlihy Flying High: Mary Herlihy is certainly the in-form player at the moment. Her Winter League team is just one point behind the leaders while Mary herself won the ongoing 13 Hole competition sponsored by Joan Ronayne. Mary playing off 33 had a score of 34 points. In second was June Whyte playing off 17 also with 34 points, and in third place was Rosie Murphy playing off 12 with 32 points. A new 13 hole competition has now commenced kindly sponsored by Joan Sheehan
