Lochlann Conboy continued his great form with his 5th win away from home this year, partnered this time by Interclub newcomer Mark O’Donohoe. Jim Suffin and Brian Furey had an early win on the 14th in Boyle, Gary Carty and Michael Simon had to go a bit further to hole 16 but always looked in control.
The matches were called in at this point but Karl Keenan and Paul Connolly had looked like they would provide a 4th win, having come from 3 holes down on the front 9 in Castle Dargan to being in front when they were called in on the 16th. The team are set to play Rosses Point in the next round on Monday the 6th of September.
