The winner of last weekends 1st Round of the Winter League 12H S/F was Kate Elliott with 23 points. There was a big turn out for the competition due in no small way to the ideal weather conditions. The competition continues next week at the same times.
Our Annual Captains’ Dinner Dance takes place on Fri 20th January in the Bridge House Hotel. Contact the Club House to book your tickets to join with our Captains Patricia and Adrian in this celebration.
Deepest sympathy to Angela Murphy on the recent death of her brother Joe Phelan, Portarlington. RIP
Sunday 8th January. Fitzpatrick’s Garage Winter League
The mild conditions and the post holiday resolutions attracted a large entry to Castle Barna last Sunday for the latest installment of the Winter League. Stephen Harte (14) shot an excellent 43pts to take first place. The committee have decided to discontinue the runner up prizes, now introducing 5 Category prizes instead, where entries are quite large. Cat 1 went to Mullingar`s Thomas Cleary (9) with 42pts. Clive Kelly (12) took the spoils in Cat 2 with 41pts. With just a fortnight left of his Captaincy, all were delighted to see Adrian Stewart (17) claim Cat 3, the ex Arsenal trainee shooting 39pts. It was a family affair for the final two prizes, Martin G. Kelly (20) took Cat 4 with 41pts, along with his ever improving grandson Adam (26) taking Cat 5 with 40pts. The Winter League continues with Round 5 next weekend.
Coming up on Friday 20th January, the Captain’s Dinner will take place in the Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore. Captain’s Adrian & Patricia look forward to seeing many members and friends on the night while enjoying the social highlight of the calendar. Tickets are available or can be booked in the clubhouse, and cost a very reasonable €32.50. Music will be by the excellent Remix. The evening will get underway with a reception from 7.30pm followed by dinner at 8.00pm sharp.
