Sad Times for West Waterford: The last week has been a sad one for West Waterford members.
The late Joanne Barron: On Tuesday last we heard about the sad passing of our former Lady Captain Joanne Barron. Joanne was a very popular member of our club. She was a fantastic lady captain in 2007, always encouraging players but most importantly Joanne was great fun and great company. Joanne passed on her love of golf to her daughter Mary, who also served as Lady Captain in 2015. Our sympathies are extended to Joanne’s husband Tom, daughter Mary and sons Liam and Pat.
The late Lar Curran: On Friday 1st February, Lar Curran, husband of our former Lady Captain Marie, died.
