Seabreeze Bar & Restaurant Winter League.
Sunday Feb 27th saw the last round of sectional matches for this season’s winter league. There was plenty to play for and relief and grief were found in equal measure on a fine but blustery day. First up, heartiest congratulations to the the following ten pairings who have reached the final as winners of their respective sections, Maxwell/Muir, Leonard/Kerins, Rooney/Rooney, Probst/Cadden, Walsh/Filan, Leggett/Durkin, Keane/Kivlehan, Nicholson/O’Rourke, Glynn/White and Cox/Heffernan.

Next Sunday the play-offs will take place to determine the last ten pairings for the final. The top ten scores on the day, v par, will advance. The following pairings, made up of the ‘almost made its’, ‘the very unlucky’ and ‘the downright blessed’ will scrap it out, Kennedy/Kelly, Carroll/Roussilhe, Harte/McGuirk, McCann/Henry, Howley/Fox, Martin/McMorrow, Basquille/Basquille, Garrett/Gillen, Kivlehan/Watters, Lee/Derrig, Murphy/Campion, Dolan/Buckley, Kilbride/Kilbride, Timbs/Moriarty, Osborne/Doyle, O’Hara/McCullagh, Tivnan/Fox, Meehan/O’Donnell, Glynn/Glynn, Borthwick/Borthwick, McTernan/Hannon, Phelan/Phelan, Gallagher/Gallagher, Gray/Keaney, Mullane/McGarrigle, McGrath/Farrell, Hickey/Feeney, Cunningham/Gallagher, Culkin/Conlon and Fitzpatrick/Harte.
The play-off competition tees off at 10.30 next Sunday morning with the timesheet running through to just short of 1.00 pm. Details are available in the clubhouse/shop. We remind all competitors that notice of non-participation is essential for the integrity of the competition.
The draw for the final proper will take place in the clubhouse next Sunday as soon as practicable after the ten play-off qualifiers become known. Good luck to all!
