Dungarvan Golf Club News

SYMPATHIES

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.

LOTTO

We had two outings in our club on Sunday 6th Oct as we did our draw. The numbers drawn were 6, 11, 14 and 22. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €6,000 next week. There was one winner of the Match 3s – William Fitzpatrick who wins €300 – this amount had accumulated as the match 3s were not won in the previous two weeks.

We were delighted that William won the match 3s as he came to our club as a member of the Aer Lingus Ground Staff outing. He was a good friend of a former member of the club, Martin Curran, who passed away earlier this year.  Martin initially brought the Aer Lingus outing to Dungarvan and the guys continue to come to our club to honour Martin’s memory. 

The draw next week will take place on Sunday afternoon about 4:30pm. Come along and support us – all are welcome.
