Final: Sept 10 Arklow vs: Wicklow GC
Once again the preparation was faultless and the commitment shown by all the panel in travelling to Arklow numerous times to practice was more than I could have expected .
Arklow Golf course is a very different challenge to Tulfarris and although it is shorter, its difficulty is in the undulating greens, the many run off areas and deep rough. While I was confident that our guys would cope with these challenges I was also hoping for a tougher golfing day as we were aware of the make up of the Wicklow team and the fact that they would be receiving shots from our team due to their higher handicaps. Alas, it was as nice a day for golf as you will see on a links and add to that the rub of the green which seemed to go against us with alarming regularity. When the match ended we had won one and lost four but that was a flattering score line for Wicklow GC, considering that one match lost on 17 one on 18, and one on the 19th.

My sincere thanks to everyone that participated in any way whether ball spotting, caddying, playing or supporting . It was a very enjoyable summer for the Brennan Cup squad, friendships were made and some very strong partnerships discovered which no doubt will be beneficial to Tulfarris GC in the future. The campaign should be remembered for the fact that Tulfarris defeated three great clubs in Woodenbridge, Woodbrook and Delgany on their way to the final of the competition.
Rnd 2: July 3 Tulfarris defeated Woodbrook at Woodbrook.
The Brennan Cup team played their second match in this year's competition and I'm pleased to report that yet again Tulfarris prevailed in a tough away match to Woodbrook. Team manager Brendan Daly was on holidays so Paul Fitzpatrick deputised for Brendan on the day and provided me with the following summary.
A fantastic victory on Sunday for Tulfarris away to Woodbrook in the Brennan Cup. Having beaten Woodenbridge away in the previous round it was going to be a very tough assignment to overcome such a strong team with such a large membership. But once again, Tulfarris rose to the challenge. The work and effort that Brendan and his panel have put in during this campaign paid off handsomely.
The team spirit displayed on the day was exemplary and crucial to our victory. In the face of fierce opposition, (in every sense of the word !!! ) the Tulfarris team showed a steely resolve which brought us over the line. They should be all very proud of their achievement. I don`t want to single anybody out, but it is always important to get off to a good start and Lenny and Mark ensured that with a great win in the opening match. That feelgood factor spread through the team and was the catalyst for a famous win.
Congratulations to everyone.
The Tulfarris team was : Lenny Murphy and Mark Walshe, Paul Murphy and Denis Mahon, John Curley and Tom Browne, Mick Curran and James McCarron, Ciaran Curley and Phelim Dolan.
Roll on the semi - final !!!

Round 1: Tullfarris 5 - Wexford 0 (Home)
Tulfarris team has just had a first round win in the 2011 Brennan Cup against Wexford Golf Club with all matches played "away". With three matches won the other two pairs were called in - overall a very satisfactory result.
The Tulfarris team was Paul Fitzpatrick and John Staunton, Brendan Daly and John Curley, Kevin Higgins and Sean O'Shea, Mick Curran and Myles Burke, and Phelim Dolan and Ciaran Curley.
Round 2: Tulfarris 3 (Home) - Killerig Castle 0
Tulfarris had a very convincing win in the 2nd round of the Brennan Cup. The opposition was provided by Killerig Golf Club who were very close runners up to Kilkenny in last year's final.
The Tulfarris team of five pairs were John Staunton and Paul Fitzpatrick, Brendan Daly and John Curley, Liam O'Loughlin and Kieron Ryan, Kevin Higgins and Sean O'Shea, and Phelim Dolan and Ciaran Curley. When three matches were won the other two were also ahead and were called in.
Round 3: Tulfarris(Away) 3 - Greystones 0
The Tulfarris team consisted of 5 pairs: John Hyland and Keith Turner, John Staunton and Paul Fitzpatrick, Sean O'Shea and Kevin Higgins, Phelim Dolan and Ciaran Curley, and Mick Curran and John Curley. With the first tee times at 4.00 p.m. and the final match won at 9.20 p.m. it was a long and challenging evening with the overall match evenly balanced right up to the end. Conditions were good - although a little windy - for most of the time but some rain arrived with the matches into the back nine. Despite the difficulty of playing away from home the Tulfarris pairs stuck to their task winning 1 on the 14th, and 2 on the 17th. The other 2 teams went all the way to the 18th and were called in before their matches were completed. Joe tells me that the Semi Final will be away again - this time to Wicklow Golf Club on a date yet to be fixed.
Semi - final : Lost away to Wicklow GC: 3 -0
The match was played in Wicklow Golf Club and the home advantage which Wicklow enjoyed proved to be just too much for an excellent Tulfarris team. One match was lost on the 17th and the other four were all destined to finish on the 18th. Unfortunately two of them were pipped at the post on 18 with the remaining two matches all square playing 17 and 18. It really couldn't have been closer but it was not to be on the night.
The team consisted of five pairs: John Staunton and Paul Fitzpatrick, Brendan Daly and John Curley, Kieron Ryan and Liam O'Loughlin, Sean O'Shea and Kevin Higgins and Ciaran Curley and Phelim Dolan.
Team Manager Joe Gardner thanked them all for their tremendous efforts in winning through to the Semi Final, in practicing in Wicklow on a number of occasions and in bringing a strong Wicklow team all the way this evening. Joe also thanked the caddies: Noel Reilly, Dave Byrne, Myles Burke, Pat Mahon and myself and he went on to thank the Captain and Lady Captain for their support on the day. He finished his few words at the dinner afterwards by wishing his team all the best for next year.
On behalf of the Captain, the Committee and indeed all the members I say well done and thanks to Joe and his team (indeed all the Brennan Cup panel) for doing Tulfarris proud in the 2011 Brennan Cup run.
Manager: Joe Gardner
Round 1 - Bye
Round 2: In last years Brennan Cup semi-final Tulfarris had home advantage over Kilkenny and came out victorious and went on to win the final. This year we were drawn against Kilkenny in the opening round but on this occasion they had home advantage and they made it count. A gallant Tulfarris team came out on the wrong end of this fixture despite playing some very good golf on a very pleasant golf course.
Given in particular that today was Fathers Day and there were a number of Dads on the team their turning out for their Club was doubly appreciated. (One Dad went the extra mile and turned out on his wife's birthday - thank you to John Staunton and Happy Birthday to Trish).
As Team Manager Joe Gardner is currently overseas, he delegated matters to Assistant Manager Paul Fitzpatrick who fielded a very strong team of five pairs playing four ball better ball. Our thanks go to the Managers and to John Staunton and Mick Curran, Kevin Higgins and Sean O'Shea, Brendan Daly and Phelim Dolan, Liam O'Loughlin and Pearse Daly and Niall Robinson and Noel A Kelly. Thanks also to the Caddies and to Interclub teams Manager Noel Reilly for their support in Kilkenny
