On Monday 29th August we played Enniscrone in round two of Connacht Shield with 3 matches at home we had a comprehensive victory winning 4-1. On Monday last (September 12th) they were defeated by Tubbercurry.
On Saturday last September 10th we played Greystones in the All-Ireland 4Ball (aka The Cecil Ewing) in Castlebar. Unfortunately we lost out on the odd game in 5 losing 3-2. Greystones played Slievenamon in the Final on Sunday last, 11th September only to have result reversed; Slievenamon winning 3.5 – 1.5. So they are the inaugural All-Ireland 4Ball winners.
Well done to our lads on their Connacht success and hard luck last Saturday it could have gone either way. Declan Loftus & John Moffatt won their match 1up as did Kevin Ward & Colm Griffin, James Connors & Padraig MacShera were beaten 2 down Gerry McDermott & Kieran Oates lost 3/2 and Paddy Duffy & Michael Keville lost 2 down.
