Winter League Draws to a close: On Sunday the final of the Winter League took place. It was a very successful league greatly helped by the good weather conditions which prevailed. The “Lang Whang” (translated Long Shot) team lived up to their reputation and recorded a fine win over “Roon the Ben”. The winning team was captained by Rosie Donnelly (12) and included Catherine Ruane (21), Una Mulligan (28), Reena McDonnell (33), Noreen Byrne (36) and Niamh Hickey (36). “Roon the Ben” captained by Ann Rochford (25) included Eithne Ashby (20), Nora Flynn (28), Stella Kinsella (35), Trish O’Shea (36) and Mary Curran (36).In the Singles matches Eithne Ashby (20) with 22 points won Round 1, Mary Herlihy (33) won Round 2 with 34 points while in Round 3 Rosie Murphy (12) won with 32 points. The Singles winner on Finals Day was Catherine Ruane (21) with 27 points.
AIG Spring Leagues: Next weekend the AIG Spring Leagues kick off. Team Manager Eileen Harty brings her Intermediate team to East Cork on Saturday, while Joan Sheehan, Manager of the Challenge Cup has a home draw against Dundrum on Sunday. Good luck to all the teams – “Eye on the Ball”!
March Club Competitions: Due to the upcoming AIG Spring League competitions being held in West Waterford next week-end, the March 9 Hole and 13 Hole competitions closed early. In the 9 Hole Mary Herlihy playing off 33 got home just ahead of Una Mulligan playing off 28. Both had 36 points. In 3rd place was Eithne Ashby playing off 20 with a very respectable 35 points.
In the 13 Hole Joe Swain finished in first ahead of June Whyte and Rosie Murphy. I have no doubt that this trio will be appearing in the Notes throughout the Summer season!
