Irish Mixed Foursomes v Balcarrick Round 2

Irish Mixed Foursomes Team Achieve Another Great Win

The Irish Mixed Foursomes team had a great win on Saturday 29th April against Balcarrick. It was yet another exciting nail biting finish with two pairings going down the 19th in Skerries to win the match (Nuala McMahon and Peter Kenny and Bridgeen Kiernan and Michael Weldon who had been three down with four to play) with Sheila McGloughlin and David Ward winning their match on the 17th – three great home wins.

The away pairings of Kingsley Lewis and Joan O Brien and Martin Coleman and Jen O Loghlen met very strong competition from the Balcarrick home pairings and unfortunately were beaten, but put up a good fight.

Well done to all the players, not forgetting the nerve-wracked team managers, Chris Alcock and Grainne O’Connor, for all their hard work and commitment.

The next round is against Westmanstown Golf Club and will take place before 20th May 2017.

All Ireland Interclub Fourball team had a fantastic win

The All Ireland Interclub Fourball team had a fantastic win yesterday, Sunday 23rd April against Portmarnock Golf Club.

We had 2 matches at home and 3 away, so we were up against it, but our boys came through.
We unfortunately lost both matches at home to a very strong travelling opposition.

The home pairings were:

Peter Donnelly and Tony Farrell
Joe Shannon and Dermot Nolan
Sub: Stephen Coomey

But credit to our travelling team, who won the first 2 matches in regulation, with the 3rd match being an epic battle with Skerries being
triumphant on the 19th hole.

The away pairings were:

Jim Wolfe and Seamus Mulholland
Vincent Hutton and Gerry Thornton
Peter Counihan and Mark Walls

Sub: Domo Henry
We would like to congratulate team manager Michael Branagan and his team on a fantastic win.

Our home pairings of Stephen O’Donoghue & Richard Downing, Michael Weldon & Robert Gaffney and Martin Coleman and Aidan Sherlock and away pairing of Kingsley Lewis & Anthony Doyle and Peter Kenny & Dan Lamont came up against a very strong Deer Park team.  Deer Park won all matches in Skerries with our away pair Kingsley Lewis & Anthony Doyle winning on the 16th hole and Peter Kenny & Dan Lamont called in 1 down after 13 holes. Hard luck to all.
