For West Waterford ladies all roads lead to Strandhill in Sligo next weekend. The Revive Active All Ireland Fourball has reached the semi-final stage. Next Saturday our team comprising Catherine Ruane/Jo Swayne, June Whyte/Joanne Fox, Mary Lou Carroll/Marie T Curran, Deirdre Ruane/Una Mulligan and Denise Nugent/Finola Butler take on Ballybunion. Should West Waterford win they will face either the K Club or Ballycastle (N.I) in the final early on Sunday morning. The reserve pairing is Eithne Ashby and Margaret O Sullivan.
It has been a long road to reach the semi-final and we are grateful to those players who have contributed to the success of the team . Players like Jean Conway who partnered Jo Swayne were unbeaten in all their matches and Mary Donnelly who was a stalwart on the team will not be in Strandhill. Ciara Donnelly played a vital role along the way but does travel to Strandhill with fellow panellist Jean O Donovan.
Saturday is a huge day for West Waterford and we wish all the ladies the very best of luck in Strandhill. They will be cheered on by a large cohort of supporters.
