Mark Wehrly’s gross 74 was also a best in field and finally a mention for John O’Donoghue who claimed the 64th a final qualifying spot and can now go about reclaiming the title he held in 2009.

Congratulations to our juniors, who negotiated a tricky first round tie in the Fred Daly trophy against Enniscrone, in great style. With four of the seven singles matches to be played away one would expect our lads to be slight underdogs, but a three-nil whitewash at home added to two taken against the head in Enniscrone lead to a marvellous 5-2 overall victory. The team on the day comprised Daragh Higgins, Conor McDaniel, Ciaran Fox, Philip Moriarty, Christian Borthwick, Tristan Probst and Conor Wynne. Well done lads from all at the club!

Jimmy Bruen and Junior Cup panels are requested to attend a practice session on Wednesday 20th at the clubhouse.
