ROSCOMMON CUP – Congratulations to our mens team who were winners of the County Cup hosted by Boyle Golf Club on Saturday the 21st of September. Teams from throughout Co Roscommon competed.

Individual results : 1st Aiden Devine , Castlerea GC 39 pts, 2nd Willie Tiernan, Boyle GC 38 pts, Gross Charles O’Donnell, Boyle GC, 37pts and 3rd Paul Connolly Boyle GC 36 pts.
Credit is due to men’s captain Seamus Gallagher and the team captain ( and organiser of this year’s Roscommon Cup) Lorcan Egan, on a very successful day both from an organisational point of view and the victory in the competition itself.
RESULTS – The 18 hole Stableford played on Sunday the 15th September had a smaller than average entry due to the Shepherds Crook Golf Society Captains weekend, so there were only 2 prizes up for grabs, first place going to Michael Reid and second to Gerry O’Dowd.
We managed to fit in one extra Thursday 9 hole in addition to the schedule due to the fine weather prevailing during the week. Sean Heslin came up trumps, Liam Whyte came second and Paul Connolly third, with Sean Heslin also claiming the 2s club.
CONGRATULATIONS – Congrats to Niamh Simon who played host to a big crowd in the clubhouse on Friday night for her birthday, doubling up as a fundraiser for the most worthy cause of “BUMBLEance”, the Children’s National Ambulance Service.
