Leinster Titles… on the Double

All Ireland Final date for Junior Cup and Junior Foursomes

One at a time……

Junior Foursomes team teed it up first in the K. Club on Sunday 1st September to get our quest for two East Leinster Pennants on the road.  Patricia Heffernan and Denise Tobin got off to a great start and they continued to march on with their match ending on the 14th hole.   The 2FM, Frances Mahon and Frances Mayberry , had to march a little longer winning their match on the 18th.  Wendy Hogan and Deborah McCready, who contributed hugely in getting us into the final, were the third match out.  We are so proud of all these great players and subs, VC Loretto Keane and Rita Keane.  Managers, Neasa McKiernan and Bernadette Flynn were delighted to receive the Cup and Pennant on behalf of their team.

Junior Cup team teed off just after the Junior Foursomes team and with great support to see them off we wished them all the very best of luck.  This super team, Rosaleen Cunningham, Leonie Colgan, Louise Murphy, Annemarie Lawley and Neasa McKiernan, played superb golf against a very strong Naas GC side.  Leonie and Louise brought in the points early and with the remaining matches still playing, Rosaleen won her match on the 17th hole.  Boom… Three matches in.   Well done to all the players, caddies, subs, Grainne Friel and Genevieve Tracy who have all contributed greatly on the road to the final.    Managers, Siobhan Byrne and Louise Halpin were also delighted to receive our second trophy and pennant on behalf of their team.  We were all delighted to bring the silverware back to Newlands.

Such excitement and joy!   This wasn’t just a win for these two teams, it was a win for all of us in Newlands.   All the players, subs, caddies and great supporters were thrilled to be part of the journey which has brought us to the National Finals in Knightsbrook GC starting on 25th September.    Check out the new silverware in the cabinet ….  and the three new Leinster champion pennants.
