Doom and gloom on the Inter Club front in the past week with the elimination of the Ladies Junior Foursomes team by Moate and the demise of the Duggan Cup men’s team at the hands of neighbours Callan.
The Ladies Junior Foursomes team just failed in the second leg of their match against Moate ladies again on a 2/1 result. Hopes were high after the first leg but unfortunately Moate just proved too strong and so the last representatives left standing in any competition is the Ladies Challenge Cup team who meet Killerig next week in the quarter final.
The Duggan Cup team lost by a 3/2 margin winning one match at Callan but unfortunately losing the vital match of two played at Mount Juliet on the 18th green. So our hopes lie with Helen Comerford’s charges to bring back a trophy in 2008.
Last week saw the June Ladies Invitation Day take place and the format was a 3 person team event. Unfortunately the weather proved to be a spoilsport with incessant rain falling for most of the day. However as the day improved towards late evening an enjoyable event was concluded with some good scores returned despite the conditions. Mary Fulton’s Team just pipped Rebecca Nixon’s team on a countback with Laura Mahony’s team bringing up third place.

The J. B. Carr Memorial Trophy was decided last Sunday and again some very good scores were recorded on a very warm sultry Summer’s day. The best score of the day was recorded by Ruth Mulholland with 39 points and she beat Pat Price Jr. on a countback to decide who is the holder of the trophy for 2008. Ruth had nines of 19 and 20 points against Pat’s 21 and 18 points. Great scoring indeed for both players in the difficult and warm conditions.
