Semi-final: July 15th: Royal Curragh 4 – Tulfarris 3
The Tulfarris South Leinster team proudly bowed out of this year's competition following a 4-3 defeat at the hands of The Curragh. The Curragh fielded very strong team established an early lead in 6 of the 7 matches. The matches in The Curragh all ended early with Tulfarris securing one win. The first match to conclude in Tulfarris also resulted in a Curragh win. With the team's back to the wall, they rallied. Tulfarris were looking very likely to level the match at 3 all and the first match reached 18 all square. Unfortunately, our final hole winning streak didn't hold.
The players who represented the club on the day were: Brendan Bartley, Pat Curley, Alan Rice, Mick O'Toole, Ian O'Shaughessy, Tom McIntyre & Seamus Breen. Well done to to them & the entire panel – they can be proud of their performance.

Rnd1: Tulfarris lost to Wicklow 3 -1. The Team was as follows: Away we had Mick O’Toole, Arran Kehoe and Brendan Bartley. And at Home we had Alan Rice, Gordon Cronin, George Cheung and Rob Nagle. Although we unfortunately lost the battle on the day, the team put up a superb effort with the decisive match going to the 18th green. If that match had gone our way we had one match finished on the 14th in our favour and we still had one match in Wicklow 2 up on the 17th and our last match in Tulfarris looked like going 2 up as the Wicklow ball was out of bounds. Alas it was not to be and we were out of the competition on the first round.

May 5th: Round 1: Away to Carlow: Tulfarris 4 defeated Carlow 3
This evening Tulfarris had their first outing in the 2014 South Leinster Trophy competition against Carlow Golf Club who had home advantage - 4 players at home and 3 in Tulfarris.
The Tulfarris team was Captain Les Broderick, Pat Mahon, Alan Rice, Darren Ash, John Devereux, Brian Sweeney and Colum Smith. The Team Manager is John Britton and he was ably assisted by Tom O'Shea who looked after matters at home in Tulfarris.
The closeness of the match could be seen in vivid detail with 6 matches completed when it arrived at 3 all with John Devereux "still alive", but 1 down playing the 18th in Carlow. He duly won the 18th to bring the match to the 19th. What happened next was a joy to watch - it made the trip to Carlow worthwhile on its own. John was on the green on this 432 yard Par 4 hole in two magnificent shots and he duly "drained" his 35ft putt right into the middle of the cup for a birdie to win his match and the overall for Tulfarris.
Rnd 2 :
Tulfarris defeat Borris in the second outing in this competition. The Tulfarris team of seven players was (Home) Captain Les Broderick, Darren Ash, Pat Mahon and Brian Sweeney. Away we had:
John Devereux, Frank Lewis and Noel Kelly.
Weather condidtions were not great in Tulfarris but were atrocious in Borris and all matches were called in there after 13 holes - to see if the weather and course conditions would improve sufficiently to allow the matches to be completed.
While that was going on the Home team went on to win 3 of the 4 home matches, leaving Pat Mahon in an all out "battle" with his Borris opponent. Pat, calmly - or so it seemed to us onlookers - parred 16,
17 and 18 to win the fourth match for Tulfarris making the Borris situation irrelevant. Well done Pat and also well done to all the players and to Team Managers John Britton in Borris and Tom O'Shea in Tulfarris.

Round 3 : Tulfarris into Semi finals witha victory of the Heath Golf Club on Monday 25 June.
Spectacular nail biting stuff!!! Must stand as our toughest and most exciting South Leinster match since we became seriously involved in the competition in 2006!!!
Congratulations to the panel on an incredible win today in the quarter finals against The Heath. The Heath had home advantage hosting 3 games with Tulfarris hosting two. With the match standing at two wins each it was down to the final game. We shouldn't single out any player but a particular 'clap on the back' for Kevin McDonald who had to sink a 6 foot put on the 18th in The Heath to clinch the match for Tulfarris.
Thanks to everybody involved for their huge effort, time off work and dedication to practice leading up the event. Its another proud day for the South Leinster Team and Tulfarris.
Now back to business...
We're up against the host club Carlow in the semi finals to be played by
19th July. We have home advantage this time (the gods are with us).

Tulfarris played Rathsallagh last Tuesday in the South Leinster Competition. The team was:
Away: Paul Lynam, Dave Byrne, John Devereux, Home: Paul Reid, Darren Ash, Kevin McDonald and Pat Mahon.
Team Managers Frank Lewis and Jim Byrne have sent me the following report.
"We played a fabulous match against Rathsallagh yesterday afternoon. The turnout and preparation of the players and caddies was impeccable. Also a huge thanks to the other panel members and supporters who turned out to support the team in any way they could. Unfortunately we were defeated but not without a fight!!! For those of you who couldn't make it I can tell you now - the finish couldn't have been closer. We had two 'kick ass' wins at home but were unfortunately unable to close out the other two necessary to get through to the next round. Three potential wins were taken to the 18th, one at home and two away....and we all know what its like to have to take that fateful putt of momentous consequences on the 18th.... Fingernail stuff to say the least. Nip and tuck all the way in most of the matches which literally could have gone either way. One match was called in at the end with Tulfarris one up.
However it certainly was not all in vein. The coaching sessions, practice etc has improved the standard of every participants game. To the team who played on the day- if your handicap is still eligible we would certainly look forward to working with you again next year however we have a funny feeling some of you will be playing in the Barton Cup instead!!!
Thanks again to all those who participated".
