to our McDonnell Cup team, managed by Billy Concannon, who were beaten yesterday when Sutton managed to take one of the three matches in Skerries.
While the sun came out for most of the round and temperatures were good, the strong breeze made for challenging conditions. Mens Captain Peter Lamont welcomed both sets of players on the 1st tee and followed the matches around.
The Home Matches
Match 1 : Paul Rogers & Joe Byrne
Match 2 : Alan Early & Michael Cauldwell
Match 3 : Pat Loughman & Gerry Lloyd
Skerries raced into a quick lead with the impressive pairing of Alan Early & Michael Cauldwell (both making their debuts for Skerries) going 4 up after 4 holes. The other home pairings of Paul Rogers & Joe Byrne and Pat Loughman & Gerry Lloyd were also doing well on the front 9 against strong opposition in very tight matches, both turning 1 up.
Sutton started to raise their game on the back 9 and eventually ran out 4 and 1 winners, with Alan Early & Michael Cauldwell winning their match.
The standard of golf played by both sets of players was extremely high, with one Skerries pairing close to level par.
The visiting team were very complimentary of the condition of the course and the welcome they received in Skerries.
The Ladies have three teams playing on Saturday 25th May:
Junior Cup against Hollystown in Elmgreen Golf Club at 12 Noon – team managed by Hilda Cussen.

Our Ladies Intermediate Cup Team also plays on Sunday – against Headford in Moyvalley Golf Club at 12:45. The team is managed by Patricia MacClancy.

at the AIG Pierce Purcell Shield qualifying at Bellewstown Golf Club yesterday. Only the top four clubs went through and we were a little off the fourth place score of 363.
Royal Tara went through to the next stage after a good win against Black Bush this morning.
Hard luck to Skerries managed by Michael Goss and Anthony Hand.
A tight match went the way of Corrstown 2:3. Alistair MacMahon and Pat Kenny got a nice win away but Corrstown had sent a very strong team to Skerries, where they managed to sneak two wins. Stan Pyke and Eddie Ryan’s 3 and 2 win was a positive but overall Corrstown proved too good on the day.
Hard luck to Gerry Lloyd and co-managers.
