2011 Team Manager: Michael Curran

Qualifying Round: May 14 at Blessington Lakes

 Tulfarris competed against seven other clubs in the Regioal Qualifiers of the Pierce Purcell Shield yesterday at Blessington Lakes (formerly Boystown) Golf Club. Tulfarris came out a fantastic 11 strokes clear of the second placed team. They returned this morning for the semi final in which they were drawn against the home Club Blessington Lakes. 

The Tulfarris Team was Keith Turner/ALanSatelle, Martin Lenihan/John Devereux, Shemus Dore/Ian Murphy, Stephen Byrne/Dave Reid, Damien Geoghegan/Ger Ryder, Mark Reilly/Charlie Magee and Ger Cronin/Les Broderick.

Mick Curran, Team Manager has just send me the following report ofthe outcome.

"Tulfarris lost to Blessington Lakes in the narrowest of margins, won 2 matches 4 and 3 and 3 and 2, we lost two matches 3 and 1 and 3 and 2, our last match didn't look good being 2 down with 3 to play but with a huge courageous effort brought the match down 18 all square. A putt that narrowly missed from Dave Reid's putter forced the match down 19. Blessington Lakes had a great up and down for par to win and again Tulfarris miss out on the finals by a single stroke.

My appreciation goes out to all my players, their huge effort and the manner they went about their business, Hats off to them, they can be proud, I am proud".
