MARY MCKENNA CUP
Our Mary McKenna team had a great win in a two-legged first round of the competition against Tipperary Golf Club. We played in Tipperary on the 7th of April and came away on the wrong side of a 3/2 result. However winning two games away did give us plenty of optimism for the return match.We had it all to do on our return leg, which was played in Dungarvan on Wednesday last, having to win 4 matches to go through. The team played brilliantly winning some very close matches and we were delighted to win all 5, which gave us an overall win by 7 matches to three. A total of 15 players were involved in the two matches.
Our next opponents are Cahir Park who also had a good win versus Roscrea in the first round. The match will be played in Dungarvan on Wednesday 8th June at 3pm. Well done to all involved and the best of luck in the next round.
