Inter Club Golf

Carrick beat Strandhill 4-1 in The All Ireland 4Ball aka Cecil Ewing. The team of John Moffatt & Ollie Curran won 6/5 Frank Curran & Gerry McDermott won 1up both at home. Away in Strandhill, Peadar Griffin & Declan Loftus won on 18th 1up John Crowe & Leo Kavanagh halved as did Padraig MacShera & Kieran Oates. Next match versus Ballymote or County Sligo on 22 May.

There were mixed fortunes for our Ladies Interclub teams. In Sunday’s glorious sunshine the Challenge Cup team captained by Dolores Mulvey overcame Boyle and now face either Gort or Athlone. Commiserations to the Junior Foursomes who lost to Castlerea. Our best wishes to Castlerea in the next round.
