Newlands’ Pair take runner-up spot in Countess of Granard All-Ireland Final
Newlands hosted the Countess of Granard All-Ireland finals on Monday 13th August, 2018. Over 100 clubs sent the winners of their qualifying competitions, held earlier in the year, to Newlands to compete for the All-Ireland Countess of Granard Cup.
The Castletroy competitors – Eimear Cregan (11), and Evan Martin (13) with a total of 37 points took the cup home to Limerick, hoping as they did, that it will be the first cup travelling to Limerick, and the Liam McCarthy will follow soon. We congratulate them on a great performance.
And we are very happy to report that our representatives Esme Murphy (3) and Deborah McCreedy (20) took runner-up spot with their score of 36 points. Well done Ladies, we are very proud of you.
All the proceeds from this event go to the NCBI, and we congratulate Rory McGinley and his team Rosin and Angela who did a splendid job organising the event. They were fulsome in their praise of Lylia Crossan who has a long association with this Charity and worked tirelessly on the day with the NCBI team. Members of the Ladies Committee also received great praise from the NCBI for their assistance in preparing for, and organising, the event.
