May 16th: Tulfarris battled it out with host Club Craddockstown and 14 other Clubs in the Regional Qualifier for the Pierce Purcell Shield. In atrocious weather conditions - which forced the Irish Open to postpone their play - the Tulfarris team qualified for the semi-finals which were played this morning (Sunday). The results of the qualifiers which involved the four best gross scores from each team of five foursome pairs were as follows:
1st: Millicent 369
2nd: Kilcock 370
3rd: Tulfarris 371
4th: Curragh 373
In the first semi-final Millicent beat Curragh and in the other one Tulfarris beat Kilcock - again in wet and windy condidtions this morning. Tulfarris defeated Millicent in the afternoons final. They are now just 4 games short of the All-Ireland.
June 13th: Tulfarris were beaten last evening 3/2 by Moate at The Heath in the Leinster quarter-final of the Pierce Purcell competition.
The 5 pairs from Tulfarris were James McCarron/John Devereux, Stephen McEntee/Alan Britton, Gareth Nolan/Frank Lewis, Keith Turner/Les Broderick and John Horan/Mark Reilly. They were greatly assisted by caddies Brendan Daly, Tom O'Shea, Jim Byrne, Billy Reilly and Jerry Lambe. Comiserations (and thanks) to them and to all those members who turned out to support them. Finally congratulations to Team Manager Noel Reilly and his Assistant Jim Byrne in getting the club to this advanced stage in the competition.
