Sean Heslin and Tom Kearney have developed a virtual monopoly on 1st and 2nd place in the mens’ competitions recently and so it proved again this Sunday the 2nd of December. In this weeks 18 hole competition, they both had 40 points, with Sean just shading it on countback. Paul Connolly came 3rd with 37 points and Patrick Egan had the best gross score. Next Sunday’s competition is another 18 hole stableford with the clubs’ Christmas Bonanza competition taking place on the following Sunday, the 16th of December. This is a very social event and is much looked forward to every year – partly because every participant gets a prize! So if you haven’t had the joy of walking up to receive a prize in 2018, this might be your last chance (even if it is only a selection box).
