JB CARR DIAMOND TROPHY
It was a very exciting weekend for our club as our JB Carr team and club members travelled to Woodenbridge Golf Club for the JB Carr Diamond Trophy. Having won the Munster Championship we qualified for the All-Ireland finals which take place in Woodenbridge every year.
The team attended and enjoyed a wonderful opening ceremony on Friday night where the draw took place for the semi-finals. We were drawn against Castlebar Golf Club and our tee time was 11am on Saturday morning. The weather conditions were great but it was not to be our day. The team played exceptionally well with a very hard-fought battle to the end. They were beaten 3-2, losing matches 4 & 5 on the 18th. A very close match indeed.They played Clandeboye Golf Club on Sunday morning in the 3rd/4th place play off and were delighted to win and place 3rd in Ireland. A super achievement and we are all very proud of the team. They enjoyed a fantastic gala evening on Sunday night to celebrate their win and thank you to Woodenbridge for being such generous hosts. In the final this year Castlebar Golf Club defeated Malahide Golf Club 4-1.
Congratulations to the panel, Tommy Butler, Liam Carroll, Des Cleary, Maurice Conway, Matt Curran, John Gough, Liam Hansbury, Jim Harty, Eamonn Keane, PJ Kindregan, John G Moloney, John Norris, Tony Power, Pat Stack and Declan Walsh.
