Men's President Padraig O’Connell's prize was played on Sunday the 11th of July in very challenging conditions weather-wise, although the course remained in excellent shape throughout.
Cian Smith was a very popular winner of this year’s President's Prize and carried his great form of a 64 nett into the 9 hole playoff to emerge victorious. In second was last year’s Captain's Prize winner Martin Daly, with son Ryan taking 3rd place, and Lochlainn Conboy returning to form to take the prize for best Gross.
The presentation took place for the first time ever in the beautiful location of our putting green due to restrictions in place on the use of the clubhouse.
Other prize winners - 18 nett - Conor Hamill, Past President - Owen Garvin, Senior - Pat Brogan, Category 0-13. - Lee McKillen, 14-20 - Tom Kearney, 21+ Sean Purcell, 1st 9 - Liam Mullaney, 2nd 9 - David Gallagher, 3rd 9 - Gerry Nerney.
