FIXTURES - The Bank Holiday weekend sees the annual fundraiser for the childrens hospital, the "Crumlin Classic" played as a team event. The Sunday after the Bank Holiday is the day for one of the years "majors", the Presidents Prize. Players are reminded that you must have played one "qualifying round" in Boyle Golf Club this year to be eligible to win first prize in this competition.

Peggy Feely also had a 70, which secured her the prize for best gross score and Mandy Toolan came third with a 71 nett.
