Ann Fitzgerald RIP
It was a week of mixed emotions at the club as news reached
us of the sad passing of Ann Fitzgerald. Ann was a much loved and cherished
member of our club and serve on many committees during her time culminating
with Ann accepting the office of Lady Captain in 2008. Ann would readily admit
that she wasn’t the finest golfer in the world but she had a laugh and a smile
for everyone and was a joy to accompany for a few holes. Ann will be greatly
missed by all at the club and we offer our sincerest condolences to her husband
Liam, sons Scott and Shane and daughters Julie, Lisa and Susan and all her
family as well as her many friends. May Ann rest in peace.
The weekend belonged to our Captain David Shanley as he presented his Captain’s prize to the members. Aided by his two lieutenants Martin and Ciaran, the Captain promised to set up a difficult test and he didn’t disappoint. The weather played a part and strong winds and wet rough made scoring difficult, reflected in a best score of 69 for Round one. Again, the wind blew on Sunday and the best score returned was 71. Martin Carroll and Peter Finnegan led the way after the first round but the pack were tightly bunched and waiting to pounce. Kevin Coleman produced the best of the day 71 to set the early clubhouse lead but eventually he was passed. One of our juniors, Chris Lanigan was playing great golf but was only playing for second place as juniors are not permitted to win. When the dust settled, Martin Carroll prevailed with Damien Burns taking third spot behind Chris. Linda Buckley continued to show her potential taking the Ladies prize with a brilliant 69. After a minute’s silence as a mark of respect for Ann Fitzgerald, Captain David thanked all concerned for making such a memorable weekend. There is no doubt that the course was the victor. Naturally Martin was delighted with his victory and can look forward to playing from his new handicap.

JB CARR TEAM NEWS
Our JB Carr team had a hard-fought victory over Tramore GC in
this year’s Waterford County Final. With a priceless 4-1 lead after the first
leg in Tramore, we had the second leg at home on Monday of last week.
As expected, Tramore provided stern opposition and we had a
great sporting battle with both teams sharing the points on the day at 2.5
each. Our cumulative winning margin was 6.5 to 3.5 with Pat Stack and Johnny
Norris delivering the crucial sixth point to get us over the line.
This was our third County title in the past four years.
We now go forward to the Munster Quarter Finals
stage where we play the Cork (B) County Champions. We understand that Mahon GC
were the victors over Kinsale GC but this is subject to confirmation. The
Munster Quarter Finals are over two legs (home and away). We will have the
choice of venue for the first leg and both legs must be concluded by 28th June

Last weekend had the major competition of the year
taking place – our Captain’s Prize. As a result, the clubhouse was busy
while we carried out our Lotto Draw on Sunday (2nd June). While
the numbers were picked the players battled the elements in tough conditions.
The numbers drawn in the weekly Lotto were 5, 14,
22 and 25. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €4,200 next
week! We had one Match 3 winner this week Tom Curran who wins €100 –
congratulations to Tom.
To-date we have paid out over €12,500 in jackpot,
weekly and special prizes. If you want to participate €2 and €5 are on
sale in our clubhouse.
The draw next week will take place on Sunday
afternoon about 4:30pm. Come along and support us – all are welcome.
