ALL IRELAND FOURBALL – Well done to Brendan Gaffney’s All Ireland Fourball team who had a great win today against Castle Dargan Golf Club. Boyle had 3 matches at home in Boyle and 2 away in Sligo. In Boyle, Vincent Egan and Mark O’Donohoe won their match early on 5 holes up with 4 to play and Adam Daly and Padraic O’Connell also had a very comfortable win. Word came back from Sligo that the 2 matches would probably go Castle Dargan’s way so the third match in Boyle would be the decider. Liam Whyte and Jason Beirne were in deep trouble at one point of this match being 3 down against their opponents, but with the pressure on and other people drifting over to watch the decider, the 2 men clawed the 3 holes back to leave it level after the 17th hole. Some fine golf was played by Liam and Jason sunk the winning putt to claim both their match and the overall fixture for Boyle. The best of luck to team in the next round.
FIXTURES – Next weekends competition for the men is the 18 hole Stableford PGA Tankard, playable Saturday or Sunday.
