SENIORS: The 14 hole classic on Wednesday 13th February proved most enjoyable for the fine turnout of enthusiastic golfers. With greens in great nick and fairways and rough equally good, the recent dry spell of mild weather has been an added bonus.While the day remained dry throughout , a quite strong, southerly wind made several of the more exposed holes particularly challenging. Nevertheless, scoring was good with all 35 golfers who played relishing the extra challenge presented by the wind. After confirmation of the teams’ scores recorded by Leo Conway, the results are as follows: 1 Liam Farrell (23), Nicholas O’ Connor (24), Martin Meally (25) 72 pts, 2 John Kelly (16), Eamonn Mc Evoy (23), Eddie Fogarty (28) 68 pts, 3 Tommy O’ Neill (8), Martin Connolly (22), Richard Smeade (27) 63 pts.
