Narin & Portnoo Golf Club Notes 1st March 2011

A 25-Card Drive in aid of charity will be held in the clubhouse on Friday, March 4th commencing at 8p.m. Prizes will be presented on the night and all are welcome.

The remaining matches in the three remaining matchplay competitions from 2010 must be played before March 17th. The committee’s decision will be final.

The club have entered the following Ulster competitions: Jimmy Bruen: Ballybofey & Stranorlar, May 1st; Fred Daly: v Omagh; Ulster Cup, v Bushfoot; Pierce Purcell: Enniskillen, May 8th; Mixed Foursomes: Dunfanaghy, May 15; Junior Cup: Letterkenny, May 29th; Ulster Fourball v Bundoran.

The passing of Joseph O’Boyle last weekend saddened all those who had the privilege of playing or conversing with a genial gentleman of the highest order. A past captain of the Kilcar-Glen Golf Society and a veteran of Minor League, Joseph enjoyed his golf as much as anyone, and was competitive to boot. His hole-in-one at the 16th in the mid-nineties was a highlight, as was his success in the McElhinney’s Stores event in 1998. Just eight months ago, I wrote of his last great performance, an unbelievable score of 47 points in the Wednesday Open. We sympathise with his wife Eithne, his family and all his relatives and friends on their great loss.

Connell Gillespie won the latest Wednesday Open with 37 points to leave a strong field marvelling at his consistency. Even Paddy Beag was impressed! Adrian Maguire had two points more to spare on Sunday when winning the stableford competition. Paddy B. Boyle enjoyed another strong showing in finishing second.

Results:
February 23:  Wednesday Open 1. Connell Gillespie (17) 37; 2. James McGuinness (25) 36 b.o.t.; 3. P.J. Murray (20) 36; February 27: Club Open 1. Adrian Maguire (16) 39; 2. Paddy B. Boyle (19) 37 b.o.t.; 3. Alan Erskine (17) 37; Twos: 3 balls; CSS 74

Fixtures:
Sunday March 6: Club Open, single stableford Wednesday, March 9: Wednesday Open, ladies and gents, single stableford, 20 euro entry for G.U.I. visitors, including green fee;

Harvest Fair Traffic Plan

The following is a message from An Garda Siochana:

Sunday 12th Sept. ’10
The main street will be closed to traffic for the duration of the parade. This will be for approx. 1 hour from the start of the parade.

Alternative routes will be via Alter and Mullantyboyle.

Monday 13th of Sept. ’10
No traffic through the town from 8am until 9pm. A one-way system will be in operation during this time.

Traffic approaching town from Ardara direction will be diverted at Connaghans Hardware Store via Mullantyboyle.

Traffic approaching from Dungloe direction will be allowed into town as far as the Grotto and then diverted out Station Road.

Traffic from the Fintown direction will be diverted via Alter.

Traffic from the Glen Road will be directed out the Mill Road.

There will be No Parking allowed on the Alter and Mullantyboyle roads.

We would ask all locals to assist us by using this one way system the same as a large roundabout and NOT to attempt to go against the flow of traffic.

We would also ask all businesses to avoid having deliveries made on the 13th, as the plan is to keep HGV traffic to a minimum on the Fair day. Please advise all HGV users to avoid Glenties on the 13th of Sept.

While we appreciate that this is an inconvenience for locals, your cooperation with the flow of traffic will greatly assist us in keeping the main street free of traffic for the Fair day and thank you for your cooperation.

John Mc Groary, Sergeant.
