Cullen Trophy team progress to Semi-fianl

Tulfarris (Home) 3 defeated Castlecomer 2:

In a hard fought tight match against a strong & determined Castlecomer, our side cheered on by some great support from fellow club members, were successful and progress to a semi final again Newbridge by August 17th. With Shemus & Linday Dore wining on 16th to tie the match at 2 all, it was Stephen Cullen & Rosemary Prescott who despite having to give shots away on 17 & 18 & having just lost 16 to a fine par, held their nerves to record a 2 & 1 late in the evening.

Representing us on the day were: Frances & Jerry Lambe, Rebecca & Greg Edwards, Mary & John Curley, Septehn Cullen & Rosaleen Prescott & Shemus & Linday Dore.

Congratulations & thanks to all.

Ladies Challenge Cup

Congratulations and well done to Challenge Cup team who defeated Castlecomer on Wednesday afternoon in Athy Golf Club. 

 

We are now through to the quarter finals and await the result of Mullingar v Mt Wolseley. We should know by the end of next week which of them we play and the venue. 

 

Castlecomer, like Abbeyleix and Portarlington, fielded a strong team but Tulfarris ladies were stronger!

 

Special thanks go to team members (and caddies) LC Miriam (Catherine Field), Audrey Finnegan (Maureen Doran), Rebecca Edwards (Carol Edwards), Carmel Curran (Mary Mahon) and Imelda Masterson (Stephen). Thanks also to supporters John Horan and Rosaleen Prescott. My thanks also to lady members who sent me good wishes to pass onto team. 

 

Athy Golf Club were very pleasant to deal with and we had a lovely meal afterwards.
