Quinn captures county honours

It was another proud day for Mary Quinn and the Lakeside club on Sunday last at a sun drenched Tipperary Hills as the Toome girl captured the County Intermediate Strokeplay Championship.

It was another proud day for Mary Quinn and the Lakeside club on Sunday last at a sun drenched Tipperary Hills as the Toome girl captured the County Intermediate Strokeplay Championship.

Having had difficulty early on she battled back bravely to record a score of +4 just edging out stable mates Frances Ryan (2nd) and Bridget Shelley (3rd) with the chasing pack breathing down their necks. Clean sweep. Well done Ladies.

It was a costly day for Grandad and the P.R.O. as they left a bag of balls in the long grass. The ball-hunting kids will have a field day. Michael Fennell was our top Senior on -7 with Pat Kennedy best of the Inters returning a club best of -8.

Well done to Riverdales Stephen Shoer who won the Senior title on -18. He now holds both the Senior Strokeplay and Matchplay County titles. Great form heading to Lucan. Best of luck from Lakeside.

The Final of the Eamonn Butler sponsored Limekiln took place on Tuesday of last week with 5 teams in contention in the scramble section. A mighty score of -30 for the 36 holes was recorded by Michael Fennell, Ian Delahunty and Sean Quinn. I believe it was Quinn’s pitching that carried them home. So happy was Sean he threw a party for the town in Foley’s on Friday night with Paddy being kept well away from the music. The Gents individual prizes were claimed by Seamus Ryan (Snr), Ian Delahunty (Int) Anto Maher (Jnr) and Josie McCormack (Ladies). Fair play to all who supported. The Credit Union Matchplay will commence shortly. Entry sheet on notice board.

Sympathy to the Whyte and Roche families on their recent bereavement.
