Well done to the Pierce Purcell team who beat Castle Dargan 3-2 on Saturday, with one of our wins coming on the 19th hole at home. They’re next match is a home tie against the winners of Co Sligo & Enniscrone to be played by June 19th.
In the Mixed Foursomes, it appeared an early exit at the hands of Castle Dargan was our fate. However we have since learned of the fielding of an ineligible player on the opposition team. The penalty for such an offence is disqualification of the team. Consequently, we now played Co Sligo this upcoming Monday with 3 matches away.
