BARTON SHIELD TEAM– ALL IRELAND FINALS

Our Barton Shield team fought hard against Portumna Golf Club in the All-Ireland Quarter finals on Friday last. Sadly, it was not our day despite their very best efforts. Dungarvan Golf Club are Barton Shield Munster East Winners.

It was our first appearance in the Barton Shield finals and we are so proud of Jake O’Riordan, Kevin Stack, Jack Alton, James O’Meara and Eoin Stack and their great efforts during the campaign.  Special thank you team manager Michael Leacy and Assistant Manager Paddy Kennedy for their commitment, time and superb guidance with the team. Thank you to all our members who contributed to our Fundraising drive and to everyone who took the long journey to Belfast to support the team.

Congratulations to Elm Park Golf Club who won the Barton Shield final over the weekend.

Thank you very much to everyone who was there to help, your contribution has made a significant positive impact on the presentation of our course. Dungarvan Golf Club is very lucky to have dedicated members who volunteer their time to the course and clubhouse.
