COVID LEAGUE 

The exciting Covid League has finally come to an end, hopefully the same can be said for its namesake!

The whole competition has been played with great enthusiasm by the teams and a worthy winner has emerged- Team 2.  On analysing the monthly results, Team 2 was in joint lead after the first round and was outright leader for the rest of the competition.  Well done to them all.  2nd place was won by team 3, who were hot on their heels since the third round. The league has been a great incentive to play loads of golf and maybe the weather will allow us all to keep that up throughout the winter. We all look forward to the return of the more usually named Winter League over the next few months; hopefully without interruption this year.

The winning teams are as follows.

1st PLACE, TEAM 2.  Cathy O’Mahony, Christine O’Keeffe, Maris Kiersey (K), Marcella McGovern, Maeve Carthy and Fidelma Horsom. (496 points)

2nd PLACE TEAM 3.  Mary Power, Ina Considine, Colette Power, Colette O’Mahony, Kolette Enright and Mary Ryan. (468 points). Best individual player Kate McNamara 99pts.
