Tickets for this are €15 which includes a free entry into the scramble, and can be purchased from any committee member. Food is from 8pm and the quiz will commence at 9pm. It promises to be a great social event and has become somewhat of a regular event in our social calender in recent years. Thanks to Susan and Brendan for organising it.
The first major of the year, the Committee Cup, will be competed for next weekend. Ladies will take to the course on Saturday in attempt to qualify for the playoff on Sunday Evening. Gents will play on Sunday also with the intention of qualifying for an extra 9 holes that evening. Holder Charlie O'Donnell will in no doubt be eager to retain the title. Tee times are filling up fast so place your name on the online timesheet you wish to play.

March results: Winner - Liam Whyte €70, Runners up Ross Andrew & Carmel Conlon €40. April Results: Winner -Liam Whyte €70, Runners up Mary/Denis O’Donnell & Mary O’Hara €40. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to all who took part.

Belated Birthday wishes to Tony Murphy who celebrated reaching a significant milestone, surrounded by a large circle of family and friends in our clubhouse recently. It was a reminder of how suitable the venue is for such events and it is available for bookings all year round. Contact the club if you wish more information.
