Golf Club News
We were all shocked and very saddened to hear of the passing of our
esteemed member, David Walsh, after a short illness. David was Honorary
Secretary of Dungarvan Golf Club in 2006/2007. He indicated a number of months
ago that he was willing to take up the position of Captain for the coming year
but unfortunately, he did not get the opportunity due to his sudden illness. He
will always be remembered for stepping up and offering to serve the Club in
this very important role.
Our deepest sympathies go to David’s
wife Ursula, his children Lizzie, Billy, Clare, John, Hilary, Rachel and Kevin
and to all his family. May He Rest in Peace.
