It was a hectic Halloween for our
Junior Golfers as we brought the curtain down on our season. Despite the poor weather, our Juniors hit the
course on Friday to compete in the Juvenile Cup, kindly sponsored by Mr. Alan
Ryan from Deise College. It was a family affair for the winners as Maisie Breen
took the honours in the 18 Holes, followed by her little brother Harry winning
the 9 Holes. Caroline Ryan presented the prizes to our jubilant winners and we
sincerely thank Caroline and Alan for their generous sponsorship.
On Sunday, we hosted the Captains prize
kindly sponsored by David Shanley. Again, conditions were poor but our Juniors
are made of tough stuff and returned some great scores. Diarmuid Mackle took
the honours in the 18 Holes with James Lynch proving successful in the 9 Holes.
It was great to see a packed clubhouse for our End of Season presentations with
Juniors, parents, grandparents and sponsors all in attendance.
Our Golfer of the Year awards went to
Rody Morrissey, James Lynch and Sarah Moynihan, all of whom played great golf during
the season. As always, we owe a huge debt of gratitude to our sponsors, namely
Pierce Moloney from the All Rounder, Maurice Troy from Bob Troy & Co, John
Lynch Fruit Trader, Alan and Caroline Ryan from Deise College, Jane Casey
Florist, David Shanley, Junior Captains Daniel Raher & Ciara Whelan Barrett
and Paul O’Riordan & Niamh Reynolds who sponsored sponsored our Golfer of
the Year awards.
Without the support of these sponsors, we could not reach the level of success
that we currently enjoy and we thank you all. We also acknowledge all contributions
that members have made to our Junior section, be it a friendly word of
encouragement or a financial donation, or maybe the taxi rides provided by
parents. You have all played a role and we thank you.
Finally, we want to thank Niamh Reynolds
for her massive contribution to our Junior Section, in particular girl’s golf.
Niamh is stepping down from her role after 9 years and will be sorely missed.
Majella Moynihan has the task to fill Niamh’s boots and we wish her every
Our next Junior activities will be

wet golfing conditions did not deter our Juniors and Pre-Juniors in competing
in the Captain’s Prize on Sunday 3rd Nov. Many were in the
clubhouse as we did the Lotto Draw but we could barely see the late starters as
they came up the 18th hole in the dark. A flashlight seemed to
be a key piece of golfing equipment for these young golfers! There is great
credit due to Grace and David Hayes and Niamh Reynolds for the work they put in
to the organisation of the event and for their ongoing work in developing our
numbers drawn were 2 7, 12 and 24. There was no winner of the Jackpot which
increases to €6,400 next week. There were seven winners of the Match 3s –
Miriam Matthews, Tom Conway, John Condon, Kate Buckley, Isobel Brennock, Tom
Conway’s Group and Ciaran/Daniel/David from the Proshop. They each win €25 –
well done to each of them. Many thanks to Cormac, James, Harry and Irene for
their help in completing the draw.
