ANGELA MURPHY – CAPTAINS PRIZE WEEKEND

Angela’s roots are firmly local, as her Mother was from the Burgery and her Father from Clonea Upper. Although raised and educated in London Angela returned home every holiday renewing acquaintances in the Burgery, Abbeyside and Clonea.

Angela’s career began as a PE teacher and she quickly rose through the ranks becoming the youngest Headteacher appointed in London. She worked in the most deprived areas and ensured her students received the best opportunity to thrive and achieve their potential.  She was recognised nationally as a leader in education and spoke at many national conferences. She retired after 39 successful years having been a Principal of 3 different schools.

Angela took up golf in preparation for retirement. She joined Dungarvan Golf Club during a trip home 10 years ago. She has given much to the club since joining.  She spent 5 years on the social committee organising the very popular Bank Holiday and other scrambles and many social events. She was part of the Strategic Committee who put together the successful strategic plan that has transformed the club. During her tenure as Chair of House and Social she ensured many improvements to the Clubhouse. She is committed to the Get into Golf programme to help ladies get access to our wonderful game. She has represented the club on various teams.

We wish her all the best for her Captains Prize Weekend.
