The Lady President’s (Mary Jones) Prize was held last Wednesday and a good turnout of ladies competed for this much sought after prize. It turned out to be a runaway victory for Jan Hyland who spread eagled the opposition with a fine score of 40 points. She had five shots to spare from her nearest rival and had nines of 20 points respectively. In second place came Ruth Mulholland with 35 points and she in turn was 3 shots clear of Ursula Mason who finished in third place. A very enjoyable dinner took place in the Lady Helen dining room in Mount Juliet House later where all prizes were presented which was followed by a social evening.

Top of the leader board came David Higgins (Waterville) and he just held on from David Mortimer and Damian Mooney finished in third place.
